New York, New York, September 22, 2011-In support of his newest CD release, Fo Kronm La Vi, Reunion Island pianist, songwriter, composer and singer Meddy Gerville will perform live at Vitello's Jazz & Supper Club in Studio City, CA, on Friday, October 7, 2011 from 8:00 to 10:00 PM. Playing with Meddy will be world renowned musicians Jim Célestin on sax; bassist Michel Alibo; Emmanuel Felicite on drums; and percussionist Jérôme Calciné. At Vitello's Meddy will be performing tunes from his latest highly acclaimed CD along with other selected favorites from his six previous successful CD releases. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see Meddy Gerville in one of his special U.S. appearances.

". . . Meddy Gervilles' version of ‘Blue Rondo' is the fastest I've ever heard it played. He has remarkable technique. His improvisations show a great sense of composition and development . . ."
-Dave Brubeck

Meddy Gerville (www.meddygerville.com) is like a fresh summer breeze in a music world of rare exceptions. He is an exotic gem that has yet to be savored sufficiently by U.S. music listeners, yet he has been electrifying audiences the world over with his intricate and compelling synthesis of Jazz and Maloya, indigenous music of his native Reunion Island, for almost a decade. Meddy's voice has been compared to Milton Nascimento and Al Jarreau, but these comparisons fail to capture the unique timbre and rhythmic intensity of his soulful and nuanced vocal approach. Likewise, his extraordinary compositional, pianistic and improvisational prowess is peerless in its conception and execution, all amply demonstrated on his U.S. debut CD, his seventh release worldwide, Fo Kronm La Vi.

"Meddy Gerville is a fascinating artist who is developing his own unique approach to world fusion."
-Ralph A. Miriello, Jazz.com

Fo Kronm La Vi is a brilliant preview of what Meddy Gerville is capable of in-person. Putting on this disc for an intimate evening or a sophisticated gathering is a sure bet, but seeing this talented, innovative performer live really brings home just how unique and engaging Meddy is. He has the ability to connect with his audience in a very direct and heart-felt way. ‘Artist' is a word that is bandied about rather cavalierly these days, but in the world of music there are few as truly deserving of this honorific as Meddy Gerville.
