In The Carlyle Set Andreas showcases her impeccable vocal abilities taking on an elegant and stylishly urban mix of jazz standards from the American Songbook. Bringing to mind the show-stopping style of Barbra Streisand, the swinging energy of Ella Fitzgerald, and the cool energy of June Christy, Andreas has fashioned a show that is as intimate as it is epic with songs ranging from “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life,” “Alfie”, “In A Sentimental Mood, as well as contemporary works by Mary Chapin Carpenter (“What If We Went To Italy”) and Dave Frishberg (“Listen Here”).
“Christine Andreas displays a big warm wonderful voice, incisive way with a lyric and an amazing versatility of style. Who could ask for anything more?”
“At the Café Carlyle is a luscious diva with beauty to enhance and a voice to enthrall….a heartbreaker…..In a tired old world of psych-out, burn-out and sell-out, Christine Andreas brings sanity and order to confusion and anxiety with a voice as pure as an angel’s.”
The New York Observer, Rex Reed
“…a vocalist with a distinct natural bent toward the individualized interpretations and the buoyant sense of rhythmic swing associated with the jazz vocal art….. Christine Andreas has every reason to feel at home in any jazz club she chooses to grace with her mesmerizing musical presence.”
Los Angeles Times, Don Heckman
