Aggeliki Dazzles the Audience at Chelsea Table + Stage

NEW YORK – Gifted jazz vocalist Aggeliki (Psoni) dazzled the audience with her latest performance, titled Trouble’s in Town, at Chelsea Table + Stage in New York City on March 3. With a selection of beloved songs in a diverse range of genres including Latin jazz, blues, funk, soul, and Greek, the program highlighted Aggeliki’s impressive range and versatility as an artist.

She was joined onstage by a talented group of international musicians- Afro-Cuban jazz pianist Dayramir Gonzalez who was also the event’s music director, James Robbins on bass, Tiago Michelin on drums, and Takafumi Nikaido on percussion.

The special guests were the well-known clarinetist Lefteris Bournias, vocalist Nefeli Fasouli from Greece, and rising vocalist Dessa Kavrakis.

Among the songs Aggeliki performed were Whatever Lola Wants, Rehab, In the Summertime, Fever, and These Boots Are Made for Walking. One of the highlights of the show was Aggeliki’s dynamic performance of the Sephardic song Adio Querida with Bournias’ masterful clarinet.

Kavrakis performed an endearing version of Moon River, composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The song was originally performed by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and became the signature song of the late legendary singer Andy Williams. Kavrakis also sang a duet with Aggeliki who noted that Kavrakis was accepted at Harvard.

The evening also had a special significance as Aggeliki premiered her original and soon-to-be-released song, titled, like the event, Trouble’s in Town. She sang the catchy tune with the skillful Fasouli to enthusiastic applause from the audience.

The evening concluded with all the performers joining Aggeliki on stage for Volare, the popular Italian song officially titled ‘Nel blu, dipinto di blu.’ Audience members joined in to sing along and applauded enthusiastically. Everyone looked forward to Aggeliki’s next performance and the release of her new song.
