New York-based, French-American vocalist, singer and composer, Pascalito, will presenting a double CD release concert. At the show, he will be releasing two video-documented live albums and introduce his new international jazz band, Neostagia

Pascalito’s first five-track EP, Forbidden Colours, was completed at the Bennett Studios just before the renowned facility closed. The second disc, Citizen Chanteur Live in NYC, features a full show of 14 songs that was recorded and filmed at the intimate midtown Manhattan venue, Metropolitan Room.

According a press release, Pascalito (Pascal Sabattier) was born in Paris to a musical family of North African and Spanish Jewish descent. He showcases an eclectic and bilingual repertoire filled with inspired compositions, imaginative covers and heartfelt interpretations in both English and French.

Brazilian pianist, Luiz Simas, musical director for these two projects, provides elegant arrangements complementing Pascalito’s smooth tone in a fluid musical melting pot blending jazz, pop, bossa nova, noir-ish night music, seductive Spanish-tinged melodies, swing, chanson and tango.

Pascalito has produced and released two prior studio albums. Le Blues d’Orphée brought the artist national exposure when original selections from the debut CD were licensed and featured in the popular cable network series Burn Notice, Damages and NCIS Los Angeles. His world pop jazz crossover sophomore release, Neostalgia, further established his reputation as both a singer and a songwriter.
