    Jean Wiener (1896-1982) worked as a jazz pianist at Le Gaya, a bar on the Rue Duphot, and later at Le Bouef sur le Toit. Cocteau met Wiener around 1921, and Le Bouef sur le Toit soon became the epicentre of Parisian artistic life, attracting the likes of Picasso, Diaghilev and Maurice Chevalier, alongside Les Six, the group of avant-garde composers that Cocteau helped formulate as a backlash against the impressionist musical movement of Ravel and Debussy.
