Karin & Mike Kelleher

mé·lange: /māˈlänj/ noun, a mixture or blend

Karin and Mike Kelleher’s new album Mélange not only blends jazz and classical compositions and styles, it also combines different eras, with unique instrumentation, including string quartet, acoustic bass, drums, guitar, oboe, and voice -- all acoustic instruments and performances.
