“Sunny and assured, the music had no trouble jumping the language barrier, and provided considerable instrumental interest with reflective guitar and deep inflected tuba solos. ”
"Melanie E." is a French Jazz ensemble based in Ottawa, Canada. Featuring the vocal talents of Melanie Hartshorn-Walton, this highly talented group of musicians (led by husband Keith) is entertaining audiences across Canada. Their sensational and romantically nostalgic exhibition of traditional French and Quebecois songs, splashed with a magical jazz appeal, provide an atmosphere that magically boasts a profound appeal to audiences of all languages and ages!
"We're introducing traditional French Songs to a new public by reaching out to all with funky jazz idioms, and awakening the senses of those familiar with the popular repertoire who may not have been introduced to jazz. We're thrilled to be bringing the best of our world, to the world around us."
