Camila Meza & the Nectar Orchestra - Jazz Standard
January 06, 2019 - New York

There can never be anything rote or routine about a Jazz Standard performance by Camila Meza – and this night will be no exception. The enchanting Chilean–born singer, guitarist and composer will lead the expanded jazz–plus–strings group she calls the Nectar Orchestra in songs from Ambar, a new CD that elevates Camila's musical storytelling to another level. "Camila Meza is just the latest evidence that this music — stereotypically thought of in today's culture as fussy, niche, over-elite, cold, old — is capable of crossing every barrier. There's an audience for this kind of beauty, melody, invention, flight." (Will Layman, PopMatters, 5.9.2016) Camila Meza – voice, guitar Eden Ladin – piano Noah Wiesenberg – bass, string arrangements TBA – drums Tomoko Omura – violin Fung Chern Hwei – violin TBA – viola Brian Sanders – cello
