Eugenie Jones

Born: February 3    Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Eugenie Jones

Eugenie Jones first appeared on the jazz scene in Seattle, WA. She currently performs in the Seattle/Portland area sharing straight ahead jazz as well as original compositions that offer infectious rhythms and provocative lyrical phrasing.

Audiences entertained in intimate jazz clubs and exclusive restaurants rave over her sound and described her uniquely sultry voice as one that they could listen to all night.

Seattle Washington is perhaps the best kept secret in jazz. When asked to name the jazz hot beds in the United States the usual suspect top the list in New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Kansas City and to a slightly lesser extent Los Angeles. The city of Seattle can boast Jelly Roll Morton, Ray Charles and Quincy Jones and that is just scratching the surface. The jazz scene in Seattle is alive and well with the debut release from Seattle native vocalist Eugenie Jones. Black Lace and Blue Tears will street on May 28th 2013 and continues in the fine tradition Seattle has become famous for.

Nine of the eleven tunes on the release are original compositions showcasing the unique individuality and style of a vocalist with mad skills and unlimited potential not only as a singer but as an accomplished lyricist. A near perfect ebb and flow permeates the release as Jones makes that transition from straight ahead singer to lyrical poet look effortless. The original “All The King's Men” is a ballad that will tug at the heartstrings of even the most cynical critic while the covers of “My Funny Valentine” and the Paul Desmond gem “Take Five” are joyous reharms that breath new life into some timeless classics. The joyous “A Good Day” is another Jones original which opens the release and sits the table for an incredibly entertaining outing performed by a vocalist that should start turning some heads in short order. Brent Black @Critical Jazz

Jones, “has a voice that covers words like pieces of silk covering precious stones. But she never overdoes it, never overflows with emotion, never goes too high or too low, but always sings with a restraint that’s cosmopolitan, yet not soulless. Charles Mundede, Associate Editor, The Stranger, Seattle, WA
