6-piece jazz ensemble Carte Blanche keeps vintage standards white-hot with classic French, Latin and American jazz standards from the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

Carte Blanche has become a familiar late-night act at New York’s most popular speakeasies and music venues: from Chinatown’s well-hidden Apotheke to the LES staple Rockwood Music Hall, the 6-piece ensemble in white silk and sequins has gathered a following who love them for their look as much as their commitment to preserving the standards of a bygone era. The group frequently charms the discerning show-goers of the popular show “Sleep No More” as the surprise act on the stage of the Manderley Bar- the secret bar at the back of the show.
Lead vocalist Cristina Kaminis gives the group a sound in the tradition of jazz greats Edith Piaf, Ella Fitzgerald, and Lola Beltran. But as effortlessly as Kaminis transitions from classics of chanson realiste-era Paris to Brazil’s sultry bossa novas, her native Mexico shines through on the bands Cuban son tracks, and the danceable, percussion-driven dance rhythms of vintage Colombian cumbia. 

"Carte Blanche lays down clean, lively twenties and thirties jazz with frequent forays into international territory: Edith Piaf and Latin American tunes from the same era pop up often on its set list"
