Jazz Nouveau announce the release of their debut CD "Reminiscing"
"Reminiscing" is a collection of Little River Band songs with a Jazz Nouveau twist, featuring guest vocalists Emma Pask, Evelyn Duprai, Danielle Blakey, Anthea White and Anita Spring and is available on iTunes.
Jazz Nouveau - the brainchild of Joseph Calderazzo, was birthed one afternoon in 2003 whilst trying to figure out how he could transform songs that were well known and current into pieces that carried an air of timeless sophistication.
Creating rhythms that echo the heartbeat of the modern metropolis they call home, Jazz Nouveau have developed a sound that not only uniquely reverberates the city of Sydney, it also merges tantalizing cosmopolitan flavours with a classic attention grabbing vintage style!
The band features amazing Sydney musicians including New Zealand prodigy CHARMAINE FORD on piano, DAVE GOODMAN on drums, the debonair GARY HOLGATE who lets the double bass know exactly who’s the boss, the elegant Ms EVELYN DUPRAI who tastefully sings it all from a whisper to a shout, and of course, JOSEPH CALDERAZZO on guitar.
Proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to Variety - The children's charity.
