ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Andy Toomey

Great band; great material
Saw these guys in NYC at an event with www.DancesOfVice.com and they totally knocked me out.
Buy the music and see them when you can because they are fantastic.

Inga

Truly amazing!
I recently saw them in concert (Russian tour) about 3 weeks ago and was completely taken by the amazing voice, music and talent of this band. I bought the CD right away and have been listening to it nonstop. Cannot wait to take my friends to see them perform live at their next venue. Their music and singing reaches across different age groups and nationalities. Get the CD and/or go see them live!

A must listen!
Carte Blanche is amazing live and I was so happy to finally get their CD! Every time I see them play I'm blown away by the bandmembers' performances and Cristina's incredible voice. It's very fun to hear one woman singing in 5 languages over the course of one performance, and the CD captures that perfectly! Highly recommend.
