and Perley, a tight jazz duo with a richly varied musical turf."
The Hartford Courant
"Compelling. A wonderful example of Jazz and Bossa Nova at
The Bennington Banner
The exciting duo of Sonny Daye and Perley Rousseau achieves a rare
musical symbiosis. The husband and wife team have spent the last several
years developing and perfecting their unique blend of Jazz, Bossa
Nova, American Songbook Standards, and International Cabaret which
has become their musical signature. They engagingly perform the timeless
standards of the Great American Songbook such as Gershwin
and Porter as well as the irresistible Bossa Nova melodies of Antonio
and Perley perform as a duo, trio, quartet or quintet for concerts,
festivals, theme shows, intimate cabaret, restaurants, nightclubs
and private events.
Their 4 CD releases "Love Dance" (1996), "East
of the Sun" (1998), "Let it Happen" (2004),"Sonny
and Perley Live! Love is Here to Stay" (2009) have generated
international air play and received critical acclaim. It is in
live performance; however, where Sonny and Perley truly shine.
Throughout New York, New England and in Europe, the duo has captivated
audiences with their spontaneity, warmth, musical honesty and
May 7th, 2013, Sonny and Perley had the pleasure of performing a prelude
concert to "An Evening with Stephen Sondheim" in Troy, NY.
