”A French Gothamite, young singer Pascalito plies his light, handsome voice in a breezy mix of bossa nova, musette, jazz and pop with a smooth-rolling band” - Time Out NY ”Suavemente!” - French Morning Mediterranean by heart. Parisian by birth. New Yorker by choice. Latin by soul.
Pascalito, New York-based French vocalist, song stylist and poet, was born Pascal Sabattier, in Paris, to a musical family of Mediterranean Jewish roots.
He grew up listening to a stylistically eclectic mix of singers from Charles Aznavour, Claude Nougaro, Henri Salvador to Chet Baker and Caetano Veloso. His resonant and sensual voice, charismatic stage presence and elegant style have made him a rising young talent on the New York jazz and world music scene.
Two original songs from his debut album ‘’Le Blues d’Orphée’’ released in 2007 were featured in the hit TV shows “Burn Notice” (USA) and “Damages” (FX).
His new album ‘’Neostalgia’’ was recorded in New York City with a versatile cast of international musicians from Tokyo, Rio, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Texas. It was co-produced, recorded and mixed by Swiss producer/arranger Thomas Foyer and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Alan Silverman. Through lyrical songs with poetic narratives and rich instrumentation, ‘’Neostalgia’’ takes the listener on an atmospheric and cinematic journey at the crossroads of different cultures and generations, seamlessly blending the influences of Latin Jazz, Bossa Nova, French Chanson, Blues, Pop to create a colorful and timeless signature sound.
