Carte Blanche - a different type of excellence

I just had to post this lovely jolly jazz sampler video from a totally different Carte Blanche. Perfect sounds for painting to. Just goes to show that Carte Blanche are the watch words for excellence.


New York's Carte Blanche is a unique revivalist jazz group which delivers a mix of classic American 20’s and 30’s jazz standards, French, and Latin American music. Dressed in authentic 1920’s style outfits, Carte Blanche has the ability to transport the listener to a vintage American speakeasy or a Parisian cafĂ© one minute, and the streets of Havana the next. Sultry female vocals in five different languages which recall the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, Edith Piaf and Lila Downs combine with the band’s versatile style to perform musical selections which are far from ordinary. Carte Blanche is available in several different arrangements ranging from a trio to the full six-piece band


  1. I want to play the accordian!

  2. We love them! Google The Wiyos - I saw them on a programme about the Shetland Fiddle Festival recently and they are similar but different!!
