Cristina Morrison Cristina Morrison

Chameleonic, versatile, worldly, adventurous, and tour de force are all words used to describe singer/songwriter/actress Cristina Morrison. Affectionately known as the Baroness of Jazz, Cristina’s sophomore album, appropriately called Baronesa, draws upon her tremendous life experiences – featuring songs in four different languages with a mixture of eclectic and world jazz sounds.

Cristina grew up living both in Ecuador and Miami with a family deeply rooted in media communication and the performing arts, spanning four generations. As a young girl, she fell in love with piano and played for about five years. But as a teenager, she discovered acting and decided to pursue a career as an actress, singer, and dancer. After high school, Cristina attended drama school in Rome and then moved Los Angeles to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she learned the acting tools and techniques she still uses today.

Post graduation, Cristina moved back to Ecuador for the summer and was immediately hired as an actress. But what was planned to be a brief stay turned into 10 years where Cristina had a child and built a career as an actress in both television and theater. She also produced and performed in her own plays, built a theater, began a foundation for the performing arts, and became an executive producer. But something was missing, so she turned back to music, her childhood passion, and began to sing and perform jazz standards.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
