Strangeness & Charm plays a diverse mix of melodic music, incorporating jazz, fusion, funk, folk and ethic material with a unique sound and repertoire.  Central to this are tunes with strong melodies, at the same time allowing plenty of space and structure for improvised solos.  Their repertoire includes music by composers such as Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, Chick Corea, John Scofield and Mike Mainieri; they also include a large number of original compositions.


The band formed in 2013, and recorded its first EP, Strangeness & Charm, in 2014.  They have played at several jazz festivals and their aim is to please their audiences with acessible melodies and simply great music.
