Brisa's dear friend Dameon, has a nice little rock outfit called "The Lowlights". You can check out thier music and such on myspace.com. She's even done some vocals for them. A little investigating and you can find it.

Brisa's hit (repeatedly) the iTunes French Jazz Top 10!
Or is that France's top 10 Jazz of the iTunes? Or the top 10 iTunes in French Jazz?
Doesn't matter. Fact is, she's tearing the arse out of the internet chart stuff, over there.
Don't believe me? Click on the Jazz option to the right of the "rock" chart which comes up.
Sadly, you can't get it if you have the American version of iTunes (like you had a choice?).
If you find her single on "American" iTunes, please let "us" know.
Nice goin' Breese.
Update: Her track "flying too high" is now #10!

Brisa will make a suprise appearance Monday night at the 'Festival Les InRocks' at the Olympia concert hall (the only venue the Beatles played in Paris), with the likes of Antony & the Johnsons, Devandra Banhart & Cat Power. (She says she's pretty nervous about it)

On a related note: Louis Malle's film 'Elevator To The Gallows' (what I thought to be called: 'Lift to the Scaffold' - I was pretty close!) has been re-mastered and is thankfully, being re-released in select theaters. You may want to see it, if not for the single reason of hearing Miles Davis' unique score. I've never seen the film, but was lent the cd (and have never given it back - if you're reading this, Steve) by jazz afficionado, writer and former bassist for Amazing Dimestore, Steve Csutoras, some 10+ years ago. I'll give it back to you now, if you'll forgive me.
And it's Jeanne Moreau's first film appearance.
