Raquel Bitton
"Hymne a L'amour (A Hymn to Love)"
Playing at: Feinstein's at Loews Regency
(540 Park Ave., U.E.S.)
Info: Tickets ($70-$90) | Directions

The French jazz singer, actress and playwright Raquel Bitton is one of the preeminent interpreters of Edith Piaf's music. Bitton got hooked to the chanteuse when her family moved to the States from Marrakesh, Morocco in 1970 and she uncovered her father's old Piaf records. On Monday night, Bitton performs “A Little Bit of Paris,” which includes works by Piaf and by other celebrated singers from France's Golden Age of the 1930s and '40s, including Josephine Baker, Charles Trenet, Jean Sablon, Yves Montand and Tino Rossi. She will be accompanied by an eight-piece orchestra. You can also catch Bitton in the docu-concert she penned and stars in, “Piaf: Her Story, Her Songs.”

" I just wanted to THANK YOU AGAIN for an absolutely MAGICAL evening at FEINSTEINS! All my friends fell completely under your spell---as did I! Honestly, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a show so very very much! I LOVED looking at the transfixed faces of the audience----some of whom were just making out with each other at their tables! I don't think I've EVER been to a show that was such an aphrodisiac! CONGRATULATIONS, ---and I SO hope you come back for another KNOCKOUT appearance!
