Viktorija Gečytė with Go-Trio
Friday, June 16, 2017, 7:30 pm
Viktorija Gečytė is a Lithuanian-born, Paris-based vocalist who’s steeped in the Jazz tradition. Earnestly delivering standards such as “That Old Black Magic” and “Night And Day” at Chris’ (Philadelphia) with a sweet, unaffected voice and an engaging smile, it was surprising to find her singing without a noticeable accent, but lo and behold, she went to Lafayette College in Easton, PA. In Paris, she finds work singing in English and is in demand for her lack of an accent and her sense of swing, two things lacking in French native vocalists. She is touring with Go Trio, a very in-the-pocket crew headed by well-documented bassist Gene Perla, pianist Sean Gough, and drummer Nic Cacioppo.
