Pucci Amanda Jhones is magical! She captures your attention in the style of which she tells a story through song. 
PAJ is a graduate from the New School, with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Classical and Contemporary Music.

As a well-respected vocalist, PAJ has performed internationally for many years in several major venues throughout the world.
The Renaissance Jazz club in Kuala Lumpur, the Half Note Jazz Club in Athens Greece, the Q. Jazz club in Istanbul and the Park Hyatt Jazz club in Tokyo Japan.
 In 2011 PAJ performed in Russian on a nonstop 20 cities sold-out tour where she received overwhelming reviews as the featured vocalist with the Daniel Kramer Trio. From 2011-2015 She had the pleasure of performing as the featured singer with Randy Cannon Trio  at the Jazz  Sheraton Grande Jazz Living Room in Bangkok.
You may have had the pleasure of seeing one of her performances at Feinstein’s, Blue Note, Kitano Hotel, or uptown at the Lenox Lounge in Harlem. Last summer Pucci and her quartet were part of the Central Park summer stage concert series.
Listen closely to her highly original voice as she takes liberties with tempo and lines, while maintaining the integrity of the composition. The eyes and ears together can relish one of Manhattan’s great Jazz vocalists while seeing her

Pianist John Colianni is a world renowned performer, composer, and arranger known for his swinging high energy style of jazz piano. Over 35 years of high profile gigs with Lionel Hampton, Mel Torme and Les Paul to name a few, as well as his appearances as a leader and co-leader have brought John Colianni broad exposure to an international audience. His dazzling virtuosity and ferociously swinging style have drawn frequent comparisons to Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson and have earned him the well-deserved nickname “Johnny Chops” from enthusiastic fans.
John’s current projects – the John Colianni Jazz Orchestra and the John Colianni Sextet expands the spotlight to John’s creative gifts as a composer arranger and bandleader while continuing to feature his spectacular skills as a pianist.
Since its performance debut in January, 2016 the 17 piece John Colianni Jazz Orchestra has been creating a sensation amongst a growing number of fans in the New York area with its fresh and exciting perspective on big band jazz.

Now we proudly introduce the equally exciting John Colianni Jazz Sextet celebrating its new CD release. Characterized by its swing influenced rhythm section which features piano bass drums and rhythm guitar, and its two tenor front line in the tradition of the many great two tenor groups the new John Colianni Jazz Sextet reflects Colianni’s unique and personal concept of modern jazz that swings in a small group format. And (like the John Colianni Jazz Orchestra) creates a unique sound that stands out from the crowd.
