NP: First of all, thank you for having me here, I love being had. And second, Happy Birthday to America! All of us in France are still kind of proud of you.
TCC: Thank you! Tell me, what do you like about July Fourth?
NP: It's another American holiday about eating, which always delights me. And eating in a park, the picky-nick? With all the meat grilling and all the beer swilling and all the music drilling... and it's not snowing on you, like most Denver holidays... it's actually nice out!
TCC: What's the best BBQ / outdoor party music?
NP: If you do LIVE music, I feel like the Country and the Western is a good fit for Colorado... bands like Buckstein. I didn't know much of the Country sound growing up in France - our Country music was a different Country's music than your Country's music, so, you know - but it turned out to be great fun. Live, that is. I don't know if I like driving with it... driving is more Vintage Jazz to me. Like painting, or cooking Al Fresca.
TCC: Al Fresca?
NP: You know jazz?
TCC: Um, do I know--
NP: Born right here your country. Made in America. Why don't we play Jazz at the BBQ?
TCC: We can play whatever we want! I love jazz. I listen to jazz all the time. We book jazz bands quite often: Eizabeth Rose, Mary Lee, CJ Nicolai...
NP: As you should. Jazz is good for Burlesque as well, very, very good.
TCC: Best BBQ Beer?
NP: Hmmm... a Mexican lager I think... Corona? Ah! A Michelada - that's beer and Clamato juice, with some lime and salt. Delicious. In fact.... (glances away)
TCC: Anything else?
NP: Happy Birthday USA!! (exits towards the bar)
TCC: Good bye!!
