Cocoa Martini Vocalist Trio Lights Up Seattle Jazz Scene
Cocoa Martini is a popular jazz ensemble featuring three exceptional Northwest vocalists -- Kimberly Reason, Karen Shivers, and Kay Bailey -- nominated for Earshot Jazz's prestigious Golden Ear Award for 2009 Northwest Vocalist of the Year.
Backed by Bill Anschell on piano, Bernie Jacobs on the flute and saxophone, Chris Clark on bass, and Greg Williamson on drums, the talented Seattle-area women deliver an engaging, dynamic repertoire of straight-ahead jazz, pop, R&B and gospel music in alluring ensemble harmonies and distinctive solo performances rooted in swing, blues, and bossa nova traditions.
