Parisian Jazz: during the late 1940’s Le Caveau de la Huchette would become an important place for French and American jazz musicians. Many American jazz artists lived in France from Sidney Bechet to Archie Shepp and as such many Americans had an influence on French jazz, but at the same time, French jazz enjoyed its own inspirations; Gypsy jazz.

Le Caveau de la Huchette is a jazz club in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The building reportedly dates to the 16th century and became a jazz club in 1949.
