Comments from Claude Dambreville, the well-known Haitian painter :

Surrounded by one guitatist, two trumpet players, and one pianist, the jazz diva sings a languid blues. This bewitching music was originated in the Deep South of the United States, around the 1870's. Essentially Afro-American, the blues may be a frenetic tune, to accompany the country works, or a song of religious inspiration, commonly named “Negro-spiritual”, or a simple narrative ballad. Carried on the wings of an aerial melody, or on the thrilling rhythms of an energetic couplet, our beautiful interpreter launches gently into one of these fascinating GROOVES, characteristic of the blues. In other words, her sweet voice reinforces with a velvety tone the mysterious trances of her moving song.
