NYC power couple

New Orleans debut !!

Sun Feb 24, 8pm


Snug Harbor

What do you get when you cross a Hammond endorsed, Downbeat Critic's Poll winner with a South African looper-chanteuse? You get the Charettes! Pianist Brian Charette and vocalist Melanie Scholtz Charette met in Prague where they taught at Jesek Conservatory as colleages for years until...they were much more :) The duo plays straight-ahead jazz with the addition of South African gems from Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela. The latter being the person who urged Scholtz to move to NYC! The Charettes combine deft bebop with the clicking language of Xhosa to make beautiful music together! The will be joined by an ace Nola rhythm section TBA!
