Album Notes
“Ruby Flambe . . . a variety of musical styles played on keyboards and ukulele, and a haunting voice composed of church bells and absinthe.”—Washington Blues Society Bluesletter, June 2018

Ruby Flambé, based in Bellingham Washington, is the retro-soul, blues-jazz group featuring the soulful and distinct vocals of Bailey Ann Martinet on ukulele; accompanied by the improvisational flair of pianist/keyboardist Bob Paltrow.

This album is a contemporary revival of the classic soul singer/piano duo. Bailey Ann Martinet’s stirringly titillating vocals mesmerize and soar on a uniquely rich musical palette of piano and ukulele. Ruby Flambé melds the flavors of 30’/40’s blues and jazz wrapped with elements of country, R&B, hip-hop and soul. The synergy of Bailey’s other-worldy voice and Bob’s enthusiastic dance with the keys creates an enhanced experience through space and time.
