The Requinte Trio at Scullers Jazz Club!

April 20, 2017    8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Scullers Jazz Club Presents The Requinte Trio!

A pianist from Philadelphia, a singer from Brooklyn and a percussionist from Bahia walk into a bar...
Fingers, voices and rhythm.

A lingering sweetness on your lips from the night before, and a quick inhale the morning after.

The richness and passion of Honey & Air , and the name of our first CD.

Pianist/arranger John di Martino hails from the City Of Brotherly Love, had learned his licks with the great Lennie Tristano and is one of the most in-demand accompanists for singers.Janis Siegel is from the Holy City of Brooklyn and grew up with New York City as her backdrop, singing folk, pop, country and original music till The Manhattan Transfer hurled her head-first into the rich worlds of vocalese, swing music, harmony singing and doo-wop. Nanny Assis, a native of Salvador, Bahia is a singer, percussionist, guitarist,and songwriter, who has touched hearts and souls through musical expressions that go beyond comprehension.

What to name a diverse trio of musicians creating jazz /soul/pop/folk/global/playful expressions? It was not quite a caipirinha, but not fully a Manhattan either. A little bit of a martini with a back of malt liquor perhaps?
Nanny, our man from Brazil, focused our collaboration and was the one to whom we looked to come up with a perfect word to express this new musical cocktail. Without missing a beat, he looked at us and said “Requinte . �(HAY- KEEN- CHEE ) It's a word that means "elegant" in Portuguese. We strive for that elevated feeling in our joyous mixture of influences and our coming together of cultures.

Our songs are the embodiment of our collaboration and now we can share this musical embrace with all of you.
