Go behind the scenes during the recording of Pauline Jean’s new album “NWAYO”!
NWAYO Release – Spring 2016
Haitian-American vocalist, composer and arranger, Pauline Jean, is a performing artist whose distinctive contralto has caught the attention of audiences young and old. Jean brings a refreshing sound to today’s music, by creating an erudite blend of worldly jazz that draws from her Creole roots and integrates modern and traditional inflections. She has received considerable press from leading media publications, including DownBeat, Jazzwise, All About Jazz, Le Nouvelliste, and many more.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by multi-Grammy Award winning sound engineer Jeremy Loucas at Systems Two Recording Studios in Brooklyn, New York, and Sear Sound Recording in New York City. The project features a stellar cast of top-notch artists: Axel Tosca Laugart (piano), Jonathan Michel (bass), Obed Calvaire (drums), Jean Caze (trumpet), Godwin Louis (saxophone), Jean Mary Brignol (percussion) and Markus Schwartz (percussion).
