POST-MODERN JAZZ/VOCALS: MÉLANGE À TROIS

Best Video Film & Cultural Center – 1842 Whitney Avenue – Hamden  203-287-9286

Mélange À Trois is a brand spankin’ new trio that takes a Po-Mo approach to Jazz Standards, TV theme songs and classic commercials. With MÀT you never know if, in the middle of “All of Me,” you’re going to crash into a Sondheim reference, an unrelated waltz, two seconds of a barrelhouse blues, a modernist touch, a soundtrack moment—even a moment of contemplation. Cristina Harris is fabulous singer-songwriter who is well known in town for her intense, personal and thoughtful songs about real life that peeps tend to get a little squeegee about sometimes. Mark Kuss has played with Branford Marsalis, Nnenna Freelon, Michiel Borstslap and a bunch of other pretty well known “cats.”  He’s CEO of unison-design, a music software company. Jesse Raccio is a composer, thinker, software designer, traveller and, oh, a snap-ass bass player. He’s a “playa” at the Grove—a hothouse startup engine in New Haven—and CTO of unison-design.
