Event

Latin Jazz Vocalist Jessie Marquez
Latin Jazz vocalist Jessie Marquez blends Cuban, Brazilian and pop sounds for lush music with cool grooves. While her themes revolve around love and longing, her soothing vocals are a balm for any heart.

Marquez got on-the-job training in Havana, where she recorded with members of the Afro Cuban Allstars. Sana Locura (2004) reached the top of Latin jazz and Salsa charts in the US and Europe. A frequent visitor to the island, she has appeared on Cuban television and radio and has performed throughout the country. Her latest release, All I See is Sky (Todo lo que veo es cielo), produced by pianist Clay Giberson (Upper Left Trio, Go By Train) and bassist Phil Baker (Pink Martini, Dianna Ross) features a textured soundscape alongside the singer's intimate and understated approach. Her English and Spanish lyrics display a poetic sensibility and an appreciation for love in its many guises.

Marquez grew up eating her grandmother's Cuban cooking and hearing stories about the family's days on the island. She first visited her father's childhood home in 1996. Right away, she says, "there was something very familiar about it --the way people spoke, their gestures, their attitudes-- I felt at home." In 2007, she recorded a small album called Get the Feeling, a reflection on the Cuban jazz genre known as "feeling" music with NW jazz guitarist Mike Denny.
