Nadine Axisa’s album ‘Velvet’ was released in 2014 featuring twelve original tracks in the smooth jazz style.Since the launch of the album in 2014, Nadine kept herself busy both locally and overseas. She performed in ‘A night of modern jazz’ (May 2014), Perugia (July 2014), the Italian Jazz Festival in Berlin (December 2014), ‘SONGS’ (January 2015), and the Mediterranean Literature Festival (August 2015), amongst others. Her most recent performance was in Frankfurt in December 2015 in the European Cultural Days of the European Central Bank.

The album received favourable reviews including a four star review on the UK’s Jazz Journal. Moreover, it was featured on local and international radio stations; the latter include virginiamusic.eu (a radio station dedicated to female jazz vocalists, Netherlands); ‘Mainly jazz’ on Alive 107.3fm, UK; RTP Play which is Portugal’s official radio station and Channel Radio, UK.

On the 11th and 12th March 2016 at 20.00, Nadine will be performing the album ‘Velvet’ in its entirety at Robert Samut Hall Floriana, accompanied by four excellent musicians who will bring a wealth of experience to this performance.

For those who are already familiar with the album tunes, the event will be an opportunity to listen to them interpreted by different musicians, with slight but effective and engaging changes to the arrangements. For Velvet first timers, it will be a night of smooth jazz tunes, fresh and relaxing melodies; an exquisite infusion of swing, latin and ballads.

«…Axisa’s expressive, clearly enunciated voice is complemented by rich musical settings and execution…» Mark Gilbert (Jazz Journal, July 2014, UK)

«…Though Ms Axisa is clearly her own woman in her style and sound, you’ll hear shades of Monica Mancini, Clare Teal even Astrud Gilberto…» Bill Buckley (www.soulandjazzandfunk.com, May 2014, UK)

«…A sturdy jazz combo on every track provides a first rate backing for Ms Axisa’s bright vocals…» Derek Ansell (Jazzviews, October 2014, UK)

Nadine will be accompanied by Joe Debono (piano), Oliver Degabriele (double bass), Joseph Camilleri (drums) and Walter Vella (saxophone and flute). These four jazzmen have studied their own discipline; they hold a track record of recording and performing with various artists both locally and internationally.

Enjoy a night of smooth jazz tunes, fresh and relaxing melodies; an exquisite infusion of swing, latin and ballads with Velvet at Robert Samut Hall Floriana, the 11th and 12th of March, 20.00.
