Sure–footed swing, sweet–toned harmony and ever–insouciant charm are embodied in the jazz vocal trio called Duchess, featuring notable New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou. The group’s self–titled Anzic Records debut album channels the 1930s inspiration of the virtuosic Boswell Sisters into a wonderfully entertaining and contemporary package. “This threesome devises original arrangements of mostly vintage songs, both familiar and offbeat,” wrote the Wall Street Journal. “They understand that swinging music goes hand in hand with an audacious sense of humor.” 

Please Note: The gals of Duchess are eagerly anticipating this week's show at Jazz Standard, but sometimes, in both jazz and life, we must improvise. Due to a death in the family, Melissa won’t be able to join us on Wednesday.  Instead, Amy and Hilary are going to do some "double Duch(ess)," and are putting together a fabulous evening of duets, solo tunes, and appearances by some very special guests.

We hope you will join us in sending lots of love to Melissa and that we’ll see you at Jazz Standard on Wednesday for an evening full of Duchess’ signature hijinks, hilarity, and harmonious frivolity.

    Duchess

    Jazz

    In a remarkably short amount of time, Duchess has developed a major reputation as a leading vocal trio. Inspired by vocal groups like the Boswell Sisters and the Andrews Sisters, Duchess boasts tight vocal harmonies that are both technically challenging and easy on the ears. Rather than performing straight takes on the classics, however, their arrangements are uniquely tailored for their voices and 21st century tastes. The New York-based threesome featuring Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou made its debut on record with the eponymous Duchess in 2015, followed by the critically acclaimed Laughing at Life released by Anzic Records in February 2017. Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony and ever-insouciant charm, Duchess is well known for their sense of humor and playfulness, so be prepared to let loose and have a good time.
