Inspired by a mysterious baroness and known patron of the arts who lived in New York in the 50s and 60s, the members of Jazz Affair invite you on a trip to a world of desire, dreaming and imagination. Just like the baroness, who used to ask musicians she met for three wishes that she would then write down, they selected standards filled with dreams and fantasies. They sing well-known melodies by composers such as Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Charlie Parker, Oscar Peterson and Chick Corea. Jazz Affair’s rich and original arrangements will carry you through an a cappella evening of love, pleasure and freedom beyond eras and borders.

From Frank Sinatra to Esperanza Spalding to Ella Fitzgerald to Mel Tormé, many artists have climbed on stage with their bands to sing the most melodies of the jazz repertoire. They gave shape and refined the genre. Some of their interpretations are now timeless, references in finesse and beauty. Jazz Affair honours these voices, the greatest ones in jazz, wich have transported and inspired them as singers and performers.
