JUST THE TWO OF US: A musical project that brings together two artists of recognized talent, with the aim of eliciting the deepest emotions of their audience, through the most varied styles such as Jazz, Bossa Nova, Popular Brazilian Music (MPB), Classic Rock, Pop, R&B and Blues. Annie Addington, vocalist and songwriter, who graduated from the Conservatory of Music SUNY Purchase, with a postgraduate double master's degree in Jazz Performance and Composition, built her career promoting numerous projects that took her and her music to Europe, Russia and the United States. Annie is now working with the excellent pianist and arranger Jamil Ghattas, a Brazilian who has become a reference in quality and performance of musical works aimed at the most diverse styles. On the keyboard, Jamil builds a musical universe rich in details and personalized timbres. He creates an ideal environment for Annie to enter with her voice and interpretation. Jamil can also harmonize, while simultaneously developing great bass lines and other magical arrangements, He works alongside Annie bringing still other instrumental textures with the guitar and the bass, in addition to acting as vocal backing. The two form a real band with their wide variety of sounds and vocal performance. Just the Two of Us offers excellent sound quality, technique and a high level of interpretation. This duet will certainly make your event a great success, and something for the most demanding audience to really appreciate. Review from Past Client: Christina Failla, New Years Eve 2019-20 "The duet group of “Just the Two of Us” performed at my New Year's Eve Party this year. It is with pleasure that I am writing this review. They arrived early to the party and set up quickly. They were professional in every manner and greeted my guests. More importantly, their music was exciting and added to the ambiance of the New Year's Eve Party theme. They performed music that my guests enjoyed dancing to, both fast and slow rhythms. They prepared a lovely performance and my guests complimented the music which all felt added to the liveliness of the party. It was well noted and expressed by guests that they were so talented. It is with the highest regard that I recommend them as an addition to any event and I would hire them again for an event I would hold in the future. On a scale of 1 to 5 , they would get a 10 from me for their performance at my party."

Dinner DanceReviewed on August 6, 2005From East Hampton, NY

We had a "Brazilian" themed party for about 40 guests; at our request, Annie and the group went heavy on Brazilian and latin/tropical/jazz numbers. Our guests included two professional musicians, one of whom is the founder of a 1970s rock group that is still revered (and touring) in Europe; the other has recently turned to jazz in a werious way. Both of them volunteered that the music was excellent. A third guest, who is fluent in Portuguese, volunteered that Annie's pronunciation on the Brazilian songs, was completely authentic. Overall, the group was absolutely first-rate, and was a crucial ingredient in the success of the party.

WeddingReviewed on September 10, 2005From Meriden, CT

Annie and her keyboard and bass players added so much to my daughter's wedding reception. They played for the cocktail hour and through dinner, including the jazz standards my daughter had requested and a wonderful performance of "As Time Goes By" for the bride and groom's first dance. So much more touching for a first dance than a recording would have been! Annie has a terrific, mellow voice and not only did she and her musicians perform perfectly, she was helpful and communicative with me in planning everything as well. I recommend her highly for any venue I can think of!
