Primary Instrument: Vocalist
Jazz Vocalist Cassandre McKinley will release her debut album under the MAXJAZZ label TIL TOMORROW - Remembering Marvin Gaye on August 29th, 2006.
In this body of work, McKinley delivers her interpretation of selected music Gaye wrote, co-wrote and performed throughout his career. From inception to execution, McKinley's sensitivity to Gaye's message and her rich, warm sound combine to pull this project far, far away from the ordinary - creating a genre that just fits between Jazz, Smooth Jazz and R & B - soulful and creative.
From her 2004 self-released album “BARING THE SOUL - this new album exhibits Cassandre's continuing exploration of Nu-Jazz and Soul focusing on additional material by this great soul icon.
