The project “The Apricot Tree” was born in 2006 by three singers passionate about jazz. The idea was to explore the world of jazz with arrangements in three-part harmony, inspired by famous vocal ensembles such as the Boswell Sisters, Lambert Hendricks & Ross, Quartetto Cetra and the Manhattan Transfer. Together with a dynamic rhythm section (accordion, double bass, and drums) “The Apricot Tree” performed in theatres and clubs around Milan with their show “It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing!”.
In 2013 they took part in the festival “Jazz e dintorni”. For two years they have been invited to the radio show “Crapa Pelata” with their Christmas concert, “A Swinging Christmas”.
Mixing music, anecdotes, and humor, the band presents a performance that is enjoyed by both music enthusiastic and jazz lovers.
