Testimonials

Jazz Lectures

We cannot thank you enough for bringing The Queen of Swing to our beautiful Asa Waters Mansion.  My daughter was enlightened and educated on the great Ella, for most of us, it was a great way to go down memory lane.  Friends of the Asa Waters Mansion

After Nanette presented her Ella Fitzgerald program at our library, I was accosted by numerous audience members, insisting that I have her back to do her Duke Ellington program. I complied. After she presented her Duke Ellington program, I was again accosted by the audience, demanding her return for "Paris Noir." I will comply! I just hope she can come up with a fourth program in enough time to subdue the masses after that one   Community Outreach Coordinator

Tonight's event featuring Nanette Perrotte drew more than 80 people to the Hancock Town Library. It was a wonderful program. I even got a little verklempt when everyone in the room sang along to several of Ella's songs. Most knew every nuanced note and lyric. We'll be doing more jazz in the months to come. Watch for an evening with Duke Ellington in the fall...  Library Director

Thank you for a great week of jazz and teaching.  You have an incredible gift of being able to communicate not only the subject but your deep passion and identification with music/jazz.  THANKS!  Coordinator Road Scholar Programs

"I felt like I was there"  Audience member Ella Fitzgerald- The Queen of Swing

Thank you for an entertaining and educational evening on Louis Armstrong at the Hancock Town Library. My friend Sharon and I enjoyed it so much. What fun! Armstrong was always one of my favorites growing up watching Ed Sullivan, Danny Kaye and other entertainment shows. Loved his spirit and radiating smile and presence. Thanks for sharing his story and making it fun.  MW,audience member

 

Mindful Leadership & LUX Lifestyle

 

Nanette's LuxLifestyle Course was a game changer for me. So much so, I have become motivated to pay off my student loans, travel, and signed up for yoga training.  Her weekly video sessions are positive and really get one to think outside the box.

Conversations made me feel supported, every now and then we did mindful practice to center ourselves - so focus was throughout all the day; creative thinking; clarity.

Arrived in the session hoping that for things to be well within me after having a bad start to the conference. I will have to leave the session feeling less of the heaviness I walked in with and that's exactly what happened.

Loved her manner and expertise; genuine; talents; respectful.

The flow; opportunity to share and discuss; practice physical focus; inclusion of musical expertise; created a safe environment to go outside my comfort zone; could be week long, though content was perfect for a day session.

Multi-media Jazz Presentations

Ella Fitzgerald- The Queen of Swing The singer all singers call the best. The story of a young woman who against impossible odds achieved fame as a Jazz singer by the age of seventeen. At that young age she found herself at the heart of The Harlem Renaissance and American Jazz. She would go on to perform around the world for another 58 years.

Duke Ellington and the Harlem Renaissance  The Duke. Composer, dreamer, businessman. Genius interpreter of Big Band Swing and the Harlem Renaissance moment – melody maker and aficionado of putting on the Ritz – Sir Duke.

Paris Noir- Bricktop, Baker and Porter Jazz era Paris- risqué, exciting. Saloon host and doyenne of cafe society, Ada Bricktop hosted luminaries such as Cole Porter, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and F. Scott Fitzgerald at her Montmartre hot spot Chez Bricktop. Josephine Baker arrives on the shores of France in La Revue Negre, Cole Porter pens the lyrics and melodies of this bright young time in word history.

Jazz- In the beginning there was Satchmo Louis Armstrong. Grandson of slaves, iconic trumpeter and vocalist brings Jazz from the brothels of Storyville, New Orleans to the bright lights of New York City. Kid Ory, King Oliver and Fletcher Henderson were players in Armstrong's influential rise to stardom while the Chicago and New York mob fought over this charismatic Jazz star.
