Jazz Concert: Viktorija Gečytė & Gene Perla QuartetAdult Events 05/12/2018, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Main Library – Auditorium
Lithuanian singer Viktorija Gečytė and American double-bassist Gene Perla have been enchanting audiences for the past 10 years, touring the US and Europe. Their music springs from the Great American Songbook, including jazz standards, original compositions, and rarely performed musical gems. With Sean Gough on piano and David Jimenez on drums.
About the Artists:
Viktorija Gečytė (pronounced victoria get-cheet-ay) started her singing career as a child television star in her native Lithuania. After graduating from Lafayette College in the United States, she settled down in Paris where she performs regularly at jazz clubs and festivals. Elegant, swinging and sophisticated beyond her years, Gečytė bears comparison with the greats. She has great phrasing, impeccable timing, a low velvet voice with smoky hues, and hits every note on the button.
Gene Perla has recorded and performed with Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, Carlos “Patato” Valdes, Sonny Rollins, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra and Stone Alliance. His most productive association was with Elvin Jones, with no fewer than eleven albums, most of them on Blue Note. Perla’s own P.M. Records label has been producing top notch artists since 1971. He is also a professor of music business at Lehigh University and The New School for Jazz in New York City.Click here for more details...
