The husband-and-wife jazz duo of Monique and Louis Aldebert returned from a break during a recent set and found two long-stemmed red roses on top of their piano--a gesture from an anonymous patron that underscores the champagne ambience the talented Franco-American couple bring to the room. Monique Aldebert, the vocalist, and pianist/arranger/singer Louis Aldebert are pumping glamour and cool cocktail jazz, mixed with Gallic and Brazilian beats, into Encino's night life at the Marquis Encino.

Electronic instruments have forever changed the lives of Louis and Monique Aldebert. For a long time, the husband and wife pair worked mostly duo and trio gigs. He played piano and sang, she sang also, and they sounded, well, like two people singing. But the Aldeberts, who are both French and were both part of the famed Double Six of Paris vocal sextet in Europe in the late '50s and early '60s, wanted more voices in their presentation.

The Aldeberts, pianist Louis and his vocalist wife Monique, continue to display their unique brand of Gallic charm on the local scene. Friday evening they were at Drake's Restaurant in Glendale. The evening began with Louis Aldebert noodling quietly at a Yamaha electric keyboard. Monique moved to her mike about 20 minutes later to offer a laid-back treatment of "You Must Believe in Spring" by Michel Legrand, using the English lyrics by the Bergmans.

But, sad to say, that's what seems to be happening Sunday afternoons from 4 to 7 at the Westwood Marquis Hotel and Gardens jazz series. Sunday's sparsely attended program, for example, featured guitarist Tom Rotella, playing with pianist Louis Aldebert, drummer Bob Leatherbarrow and bassist Dominick Genova.

Astute listeners might notice a difference between Michael Bolton's recently released single of "Georgia on My Mind" and the same song on his multi-platinum CBS album, "Soul Provider." And Michael Brecker isn't happy about it. CBS edited out of the single a solo by saxman Brecker and replaced it with one by fellow saxophonist Kenny G. Brecker--who has recorded solos on records by Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra--remains on the album's "Georgia" track.
