8:30 pm Rising star jazz vocalist Melissa Stylianou is back with the band! The honor and privilege is all ours as Melissa returns to the jazz room with the band from 55 Bar – which means your ticket to New York’s Greenwich Village is on us this year!
“…an unmannered and affecting jazz singer with a taste for choice material…” – The New Yorker
Melissa received rave reviews all across the board for Silent Movie, her 2012 release that led Downbeat to nominate her as one of the Top 10 Rising Star Jazz Vocalists in 2012.
“With ‘Silent Movie’, she settles into a spellbinding groove that advances her to the forefront of contemporary vocalists, rivaling the storytelling élan of Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon.” – JazzTimes
The story is out in NY at Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Jazz Standard, Birdland, The Blue Note, Iridium, The Kitano, Le Poisson Rouge, Joe’s Pub and 55 Bar. “She’s the sort of warm, open and secure singer for whom ‘style’ is a means not an end.” – The Globe & Mail
