Hilary Gardner, Melissa Stylianou and Amy Cervini are Duchess. The vocal trio performed at 55 Bar on February 22.

Caught a highly entertaining show by the vocal trio Duchess at 55 Bar, featuring guests Anat Cohen on clarinet and Jeff Lederer on tenor sax.  Here’s my story in DownBeat. Their musical treatments are up-to-date, even though the source material is vintage. “You won’t hear us doing Beyoncé in Andrews Sisters style,” singer Hilary Gardner told me.
