Charito – American Gold Standards

12DGcc

READ MORE

Excited to share the upcoming Japanese release of vocalist Charito’s American Gold Standards: Charito meets Tamir Hendelman.

I first met Manila-born, Tokyo-based jazz vocalist Charito in Japan when she sat in with the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.

Her soulful spark, the way she sings from the heart- stayed with me.  Years later, we finally got to collaborate and it was truly a joyous occasion.

Charito has recorded with Ivan Lins, Michel Legrand and Harvey Mason on some special projects.  This was a chance to pay tribute to the Great American Songbook.

It was all about breathing new life to this classic songs by Irving Berlin,Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jobim and more. We hope you enjoy the music…

Featuring John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton, Graham Dechter, Lori Bell, Gilbert Castellanos and Rickey Woodard.

READ MORE

 

Affair To Remember is a rich compilation of timeless, romantic ballads by Charito, where she reunites with pianist extraordinaire and long time friend Soichi Noriki. They are back together creating sheer elegance and artistic maturity in this album of jazz standards. Joined by musicians of an equally high caliber, super bass players Benisuke Sakai and Kengo Nakamura and Gene Jackson on drums – one of the swinging-est backing bands ever, all of whom are thinking of the whole sound and the whole effect, makes for the beauty of this great collaboration. Gorgeous songs and accompaniment along with her deep vibrato, Charito, always makes lyrics come alive. Her renditions of all the songs are hauntingly romantic and are pure magic. Now in her prime, she wraps her sultry voice around standards as “Say It” and “Estate” and soars on popular show tunes such as “Smile” and “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing”. An Affair To Remember is among the most moving and emotional ballads she’s ever recorded.Throughout, this album takes you to a gentle,hard to forget, romantic jazz music journey.

Watch What Happens – Charito meets Michel Legrand

READ MORE

 

A rare, history making collaboration with Michel Legrand, Charito’s “Watch What Happens”, succeeds in capturing the essence of the great maestro’s timeless pieces.
A mix of strong melodies and provocative arrangements, this album contains interpretations of famous movie themes, “Umbrellas of Cherbourg” “Windmills of Your Mind” and “Summer of ’42.” Particularly impressive are Charito and Michel’s vocal duet numbers Pieces of Dreams and Quaind On S’aime.
Recorded in such an intimate way, this recording confirms Michel’s recognition of Charito’s vocal stylings.
“A beautiful and spontaneous expression of life” were his exact words of praise.
