Thana Alexa Project
In June of 2015, right around the time Birdman opened, the Jazz Bakery was privileged to present brilliant composer-drummer Antonio Sanchez. He turned out to be every bit as mind-blowing as expected. But the surprise was his vocalist, Thana Alexa.
I doubt that anyone who heard her that night will ever forget her. Her musicality took my breath away. I am so pleased that we now have another opportunity to share her with you. (Her current release Ode to Heroes is available on Jazz Village)
Since we first heard her, Alexa has received nothing but astonishing reviews.
Downbeat: A radiant voice sparkling artistry and unerring confidence Ascendant Singer young and chic possessing an electric stage presence a warm-hearted chanteuse with old-school charm.
Jazz Times: her voice... percussive, lush, lyrical, precise and distinct, employs a wide range of vocal techniques and makes them all work beyond belief Though young, she has the daring and maturity of someone 30 years older, steady and soulful. Vocals, enthralling ... compositions, heart-warming... arrangements, heart-stopping.
