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…
