Trish Hatley American Songbook

Trish-Swing-Session900

Vocalist Trish Hatley is one of the most beloved and enduring figures on the West Coast music scene today. With her easy sense of swing, beautiful tone and innate sensitivity to the lyric, she effectively balances technical mastery and genuine accessibility, making her extremely popular among jazz fans and critics alike. Trish performs and records with her own quintet, as well as the vocal jazz trio Trish, Hans and Phil. She has appeared in multiple Pop Symphony concerts and loves “singing with swingin’ Big Bands” whenever the opportunity presents itself. Trish is particularly revered for her mastery of the Great American Songbook. In the words of music blogger Robert Nicisoa, “She sings songs that were written years ago but her approach breathes new life and sparkle into all of them!”

Trish has released eight critically acclaimed CD’s to date; six with the Trish Hatley Quintet and two with the vocal jazz trio “Trish, Hans & Phil.” Her most recent CD “I Remember, 2nd Set,” released in 2015, is a follow-up to 2010’s “I Remember,” a heartfelt homage to the classic jazz standards. “I Remember, 2nd Set” has been well received by critics throughout the U.S. and Europe. Paul Richards of WHLI Radio in New York City describes the recording as “relentlessly and ridiculously good from beginning to end.”

Joe Cardillo

pro-2
Joe Cardillo creates a unique combination of live loops using percussive beats by thumping his guitar, laying down the chords, and playing bass lines (using the octave guitar pedal).In addition, he sings the melody while often times looping vocal harmonies. Perhaps the most unique aspect of his show is Joe’s ability to open up the songs by picking up any of his four saxophones and playing soulful solos with the loops in the background.Joe’s sound can be described as a melting pot of One Republic, Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, and Jason Mraz topped off with tasteful saxophone solos.

         
1filterbThroughout his music career, Joe has opened up for acts such as Sister Hazel, Dispatch, Everclear, Eric Martin, The Pat McGee Band and worked with Lakewest Studios producer Jack Gauthier (Dispatch, Pete Francis, Rich Price, Cardinal Direction).Joe has brought a whole new meaning to a “solo” act. In fact, when listening to his CD, numerous people have commented their disbelief in one person being able to produce the array of instruments and vocals without pre-recorded tracks. In order to truly appreciate and understand his style, a fan must see him play live at a show.The interaction and relationship Joe employs with his movement of tapping the various floor pedals to create loops and different sounds, while simultaneously playing his instruments and singing provides the audience with a voluminous sound and a distinctive live show that will make them come back for more.
