Jazz Repertoire


"As good as everyone has been (special shout-out to Franz von Chossy), Michelle Rounds took it up a notch or ten last night. So fun. So great. And props to Black Ice for managing to keep-up with her, especially on the improv. Laila Sabbagh showing-up for the duets was fantastic. And what was more fantastic was that long pause where each waited for the other to sing. Brings-out the beauty to jazz. I'm still enthused from last night."


Karim Anani (speaking about the Haya Cultural Centre concert of Amman Jazz Festival - April 2015)



"Dear, thank you very much for heart - warming music. In fact, your concert has been such a powerful proof for me of music being able to heal. I did not feel like coming for your concert to be honest, I had some tough days and I only came because of a friend of mine who loves jazz and I wanted to do something nice for her. It was truly amazing experience, way more than just listening to nice songs, but your whole kind presence makes people around to feel better. Thank you from the bottom of my soothed heart"
