The Swing Queen.

Melissa Stylianou is one of the big younger names in New York's jazz scene. She has her own regular gig on legendary 55 bar in New York.

She has a fantastic talent to deliver a show that at the same time maintains the audience and impresses with nerve and musicality. Melissa is known for both her virtuosity as vocalist and the ability to bridge the modern jazz and singer-songwriter genre. Highly rated Jazztimes Magazine writes: "Melissa Stylianou is at the forefront of contemporary vocalists, rivaling the storytelling élan of Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon.

Here we hear her from Trio Templeton, which in her own right is a true powerhouse of solid swing and empathy.
