Unbelievable! Camille Bertault scat sings Coltrane's "Giant Steps" - At a staggering 286 beats per minute, and an ultra-demanding chord progression, John Coltrane's Giant Steps is regarded as one of the greatest challenges in jazz. The great tenor saxophonist recorded it in 1959 and laid down an immensely virtuosic, hard-bop improvistaion which was to become regarded as one of the finest and most inventive solos in all jazz.

MaMuse-- This merry duo (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker), weave voices like a Celtic knot upon a sparse instrumental pallet of upright bass, guitar, mandolins and flutes. Original songs transmitted through the heart and infused with improvisation and storytelling, leave audiences softened and singing along. Creating beauty and magic wherever they go, MaMuse is what a meadow would sound like if it could sing. CD's available for purchase at Made in Chico  madeinchicostore.com
