Stéphane Tamaillon's story and Priscilla Horviller's drawings paint the portrait of Pannonica de Koenigswarter, a whimsical baroness and extraordinary linked to jazz. The daughter of the banker Charles de Rothschild, married a French nobleman but did not flourish in her life as a diplomat's wife. She leaves the matrimonial home to attend Manhattan jazz clubs. Friend of Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, she lives a romantic relationship with the pianist Thelonious Monk. She welcomes in her vast house, her friendly musicians and 122 cats. Rejected by her family, she is pampered by the tabloids.
Beyond a comic book, La Baronne du jazz is the graphic and musical portrait of a daring and passionate woman who has left a lasting mark on the history of jazz.
