Erika Norbert & Shaye, indeed a very special trio, playing authentic blues from the 20s, 30s and 40s with Vocal, Trumpet and Piano, inspired among others, by Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Louis Armstrong. We founded the trio in October 2010, while playing informally together at the Spotted Cat Music Club on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. On that occasion, there was such an instant magic in the music and in the way we played together. It was calling to be recorded, and the result is now in your hands. Soon after, we started performing in New Orleans Clubs, and also appearing on Jazz festivals in Europe. When we are playing together it feels like our musical lines are weaving effortlessly into a beautiful picture of sound. Again and again, audiences keep calling it “magical”.
