Vlog 5 – Brooklyn & Smoke Jazz

Never thought that I would be this impressed. But I was. It was grand, enormous and overwhelming.  I’m starting to sound like a real American.

What a day, what a day. Interviewing the creative and ‘out-of-the-box-thinker’ Vivienne Aerts at Ix Cafe on Lincoln Road. A Dutch jazz singer living in Brooklyn with an interesting lifestory about music. You can look her up at www.vivienneaerts.nl

After a very nice veggie sandwich I was still contemplating what to do next. Vivienne then gave me the best tip of the day: ‘Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge’. So there I went. Through the Prospect Park, walking past the Arc de Triomphe (???) and took the subway to the impressive Brooklyn Bridge. Found me THE place to drink a bear, eat a hotdog and get the most magnificent few of the skyline all in one. If that wasn’t enough I paid a visit to the Smoke Jazz Club on Broadway. Scary as hell, but I also sang a song. Whaaa! Breaking boundaries is what this trip is all about.

Next up will be classy jazzclubs in Greenwich Village.

    Ik ben een beetje jaloers, heb New York al vaak bezocht, maar deze stad blijft mij boeien?

      Nou daar kan ik me wat bij voorstellen. Het is ongelooflijk indrukwekkend en ik weet nu al dat ik zeker nogmaals terugkom.
