The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art presents Within Earshot Festival in partnership with Earshot Jazz.
Described as an innovative joyful Jazz Quartet performing original music and jazz standards, the Jenny Davis Quartet features Jenny Davis, vocals; Marina Albero, piano; Ted Enderle, bass; and Xavier Lecouturier, drums. Redefining the art of singing, award-winning vocalist, composer, and bandleader Jenny Davis has established herself as an innovative, progressive composer, gaining the attention and respect of musicians, critics, and fans throughout the US and abroad. ROOTS MUSIC declares Jenny “a talented singer-composer – knocking it out of the park!”
Celebrating 17 weeks on top of the jazz charts, her 5th album Rearranged, is deeply inspired by her devotion to promotion of human rights advocacy. The album includes a collection of original scores and brings together an all-star cast of musicians with whom Davis has previously collaborated, including a special alliance with three-time GRAMMY-nominated pianist Jovino Santos Neto, and featuring Chuck Deardorf (bass), Dmitri Matheny (flugelhorn), Mark Taylor (saxophone), Kate Olson (saxophone), and New York-based Sirius String Quartet. “An odyssey of a fully-fledged composer who has skillfully crafted an opus of collected experiences and memories and lovingly shares them with her audience” – EARSHOT JAZZ
Born and raised in Seattle, Davis received her Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts, as a Maggie Hawthorne scholarship recipient. She went on to receive her MFA in music composition from Vermont College of Fine Arts, receiving women’s composer scholarships. She is currently serving as a director with the Seattle Composer Alliance, as a new music concert producer.
