Svetlana & The New York Collective

A performance by Svetlana and the New York Swing Collective is a colorful carnival of sound, seamlessly moving from sophisticated retro­spection to a joyfully rowdy party – delivering sounds that blend swing, straight-ahead jazz and original material. Svetlana forges deep connections with audiences with her strong vocals, charismatic performance style, exciting improvisational aspects of performance, and engaging storytelling.

Svetlana has performed professionally since 2011 after reaching success as a management consultant and associate professor at Columbia University – and has toured with her various bands nationally and internationally since 2017, headlining hundreds of sold out shows in the US and abroad. Svetlana and her band have headlined sold out shows in renown jazz clubs, performing arts centers in the US holding crowds breathless from intimate house concerts to 1,500 people strong outdoor series in Brooklyn, NY, delivering “great sounding, great looking, highly entertaining unique tight show – with big sound and deeply personal sincere connection with the audience!”

Hailed “outstanding band” and “NYC darlings”, Svetlana’s New York Collective is a group of determined jazz talents on a mission to uplift, energize… and spread the joy of “exuberant foot-stomping music that com­bines New York swing with pop singer/songwriter sensibilities.” Svetlana and her band have released a chart-topping Night at the Movies (debuted #1 on the US Billboard Traditional Jazz Charts / #2 on Jazz Album Charts) in 2019 and have headlined sold out release shows at Joe’s Pub (NYC), Blues Alley (Washington DC), Regatta Bar (Boston), Blue Note (NYC) and beyond. 2020 is seeing a new iteration of New York Collective “mobile unit”, a quartet-sized band with an emphasis on showcasing bandleader Svetlana’s artistry, exciting new original compositions, and unique arrangements of material from her chart-topping record Night at the Movies – and beyond.
