Thursday April 28th, 2016 3:05pm @ The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival:
Armed only with her cello and the electronic loops she manipulates so skillfully Gillet, dressed in shorts and a Chazfest t-shirt, turned in a magnificent set. She layered loops of cello lines and rhythm patterns to the point where she sounded like a full orchestra, dancing in her seat as she sang wordless vocals. She finished the set singing a song from her Belgian childhood in French. The guy sitting next to me was spellbound. “I’ve never heard anything like that,” he said in wonder.  Offbeat Magazine webpicjazz2016
