Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou make up the New York-based vocal group known as Duchess.

Following in the tradition of the Boswell Sisters, the group has been singing together in New York since a chance encounter brought them together in 2013. In the years that have followed, the group has toured all over the world, sharing their tight harmonies and engaging stage presence.

They’ve just released their fourth album with Anzic Records, a 12-song set called Live at Jazz Standard.

Cervini joined us to talk about the making of that live recording, and how the album is a form of wish fulfillment for those of us who have been missing the experience of live music.
