KUVO focuses on the music of the West Coast on Thursday, May 2 with a performance of the Eugenie Jones Quartet LIVE from KUVO’s Bonfils–Stanton Performance Studio at noon!

The Seattle-based Eugenie Jones will perform with Eric Gunnison, Mark Simon, and Mike Marlier.

Through inspiration and an inexhaustible work ethic, Eugenie Jones has transformed into a jazz vocalist of impeccable quality, with a respect for the jazz tradition and the courage to try something she had never imagined – a singing career. Eugenie Jones was not supposed to be a jazz singer. She graduated with an MBA in marketing, and her post-graduate career took her deep within the nonprofit sector as a marketing communications executive. Her mother, a soprano gospel singer, was the singer of the family, and when cancer claimed her life, Jones managed her grief by setting out to see if she could carry forward that part of her mom’s life. Ten years later, the now acclaimed jazz vocalist and songwriter with a heartwarming backstory celebrates her first decade in the jazz spotlight with The Originals, a greatest hits collection of songs from her prior albums, all from her pen and all released on her music label, Open Mic Records.

Bandleader/drummer Joe Chambers calls Jones “an excellent singer, with a voice, style, and range that encompasses multiple idioms. I predict she will become the next singing sensation in all of music.” NEA Jazz Master Reggie Workman writes about Eugenie Jones: “This is an exceptional vocalist and songwriter that we are fortunate to have the opportunity to experience.”

The Eugenie Jones Quartet also performs on Friday, May 3 at The Muse Performance Space in Lafayette, Colo.
