Annabelle Chvostek

String of Pearls (Self-Release MQGV456)

Annabelle Chvostek’s new album String Of Pearls brings together the Canadian singer’s nostalgia for her East European heritage and a long-standing connection to Uruguay. Recorded in Montevideo and Toronto, the CD swings between Uruguay’s stellar classical, tango, and jazz musicians, who add to a contemporary sound that harkens back to the grittiness of 1930s tango and vaudeville cabaret, and the folds in the swinging heat of Toronto’s Jazz Manouche scene.
