Cart Blanche Live at The Django

November 18, 2016 @ 10:30 pm - November 19, 2016 @ 1:30 am

NYC based 6-piece jazz ensemble Carte Blanche breathes new life into jazz classics from around the world. Effortlessly transitioning from 20’s and 30’s American jazz standards to 40’s Parisian swing, bossa nova, cumbia, Russian, Yiddish, and Italian selections, the band’s dynamic and engaging act is a time capsule filled with vintage international musical gems- many of them rarely heard live. The group also incorporates original compositions, offering a modern twist on the tried and true styles of the 20’s 30’s and 40’s. The band features Spanish born, Mexican/American raised vocalist Cristina Kaminis whose unusual and sultry vocal quality captures the essence of the era, and enchants audiences with her impressive knack for languages and musical styles; easily flowing from Edith Piaf to Buena Vista Social Club renditions. The ensemble’s versatile instrumentation featuring accordion and violin has a rich and captivating sound that is powered by a tight rhythm section. With their stunning white vintage accoutrements, they have developed a large group of devoted fans around the globe who love them as much for their look as for their commitment to preserving the music of a by-gone era
