Sonny and Perley will give the final concert in the free Jazz on Jay series at noon today. The rain site is the Muddy Cup in Proctors.
The husband-and-wife team have spent the past several years developing their unique blend of jazz, Brazilian and international cabaret. Perley Rousseau is a singer with roots in traditional jazz, and pianist Sonny Daye is her accompanist. Performing vocal interpretations in several languages including English, the two glide smoothly from bossa nova to swing and from samba to delicate ballads.
Their two CD releases “Love Dance” (1996) and “East of the Sun” (1999) have generated international air play and received critical acclaim.
