The pairing of jazz vocalist Petra van Nuis and guitarist Andy Brown is one of those rare combinations where all parts seem to fit. As high school sweethearts at a performing arts school in Cincinnati Ohio, Petra and Andy grew up together as artists. After following separate creative paths for a few years (she as a dancer and he as a blues guitarist), they fell under the spell of local jazz artists in Petra’s home town of Cincinnati. Guitar legends Cal Collins and Kenny Poole influenced Andy, while Petra was moved by the late Ann Chamberlain, a remarkable and unheralded jazz singer.
