The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley presents jazz vocalist René Marie for two nights. Band members are Kevin Bales (piano), Kevin Hamilton (bass) and Quentin Baxter (drums). Set times Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Doors at 6pm on Tuesday and 5:30pm on Wednesday.
René Marie, the award winning singer whose style incorporates elements of jazz, soul, blues and gospel, has quickly become a heroine to many; a woman of great strength exuding stamina and compassion; often explaining how finding her voice and self through singing gave her the courage to leave an abusive marriage. But since the release of her recording debut, Renaissance, this Colorado based heroine has also evolved into one of the most sensuous vocalists of our time. Unmistakably honest and unpretentious while transforming audiences with her powerful interpretations, electrifying deliveries and impassioned vocals – René Marie has drawn a legion of fans and music critics who find themselves not only entertained, but encouraged.
