Viktorija Gečytė with Go Trio
Lithuanian Vocalist based in Paris
Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
Viktorija Gečytė [Get-CHEET-Hey] is a Lithuanian-born, Paris-based vocalist steeped in the jazz tradition. She hit the stage at the age of five in her native Lithuania and was soon singing festivals, touring Europe, recording, and making appearances on Lithuanian television. Some years later, influenced by the great American singers, she started to feel the swing and decided to freelance. Her ease, sense of rhythm, and strong low voice appealed to many ears, and earned her international awards. She met Gene Perla, bass and Sean Gough, keyboard of Go Trio while in college in the U.S. Since returning to Paris, she has returned each year for short tours with Go Trio. Propelled by American jazz bassist Gene Perla, who has played with Elvin Jones, Sonny Rollins, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan, Go Trio features pianist Sean Gough, a young man who continues to stretch the boundaries of the American Songbook, jazz standards, and original melodies. They will be joined by drummer Nic Cacioppo. Even as they mine the most familiar tunes, each musician's effortless attentiveness guarantees vital and spontaneous music. Go Trio has played at leading jazz clubs and music festivals and is releasing their new recording “No Detour Ahead” with Viktorija Gečytė this spring.
