"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

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.

This Spring they are back in the studio, recording an EP of all original content to follow their existing albums.

"Perfectly vintage jazz ensemble Carte Blanche matches its jazzy chops with just-right silk and sequins." Time Out New York

"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" NY Magazine

“Listening to New York-based jazz ensemble Carte Blanche will make you feel like Owen Wilson’s character in Midnight in Paris after he stumbles back in time.” BizBash

“I love the look in the eyes of lead vocalist Cristina Kaminis” Editor-In-Chief, Michael McCarthy, D.C Magazine"
