“Songbook – Music of America’s Great Songwriters”
ANAÏS RENO, voice
PETE MALINVERNI, piano
SAMEER SHANKAR, bass
ERIC HALVORSON, drums
Anaïs Reno is a spectacular new voice on the international Jazz Scene. Her first recording,
“Lovesome Thing”, was very well-received and marked her as one to be heard. She was
featured on the post-Covid “New York State of Mind” video that included singers like Idina
Menzel, Sara Bareilles, Brian Stokes-Mitchell and Stephen Colbert, and she was heard singing
“America the Beautiful” on the September 11, 2021 special national broadcast of the Yankees-
Mets game that night. She’s appeared at Birdland, Feinstein’s 54 Below, Carnegie Recital Hall
and other venues and festivals worldwide. Catch her now!
Joining Anaïs will be Jazz pianist/composer/educator and Pound Ridge resident Pete Malinverni
at the piano, along with up and coming bassist Sameer Shankar and veteran great Eric
Halvorson at the drums.
The group will offer a set of songs from the Great American Songbook, featuring music by Cole
Porter, Duke Ellington, Jimmy Van Heusen and others.
This is a special presentation by the Pound Ridge Library, an opportunity to hear world-class music right here in Pound Ridge.
