Tessa Souter (vox)
Don Braden (flute+saxophone)
Larry Koonse (guitar)
Hamilton Price (bass)
Aaron McLendon (drums)

Since her 2004 recording debut, jazz vocalist Tessa Souter's gorgeous voice, and penchant for exploring strikingly beautiful music mostly untouched by other vocalists, has set her apart as "one of the few exceptional standouts in the crowded field of female jazz singers." -Los Angeles Times

"Singers like her don't come along every day." -Chicago Examiner

"Broadly imaginative" -New York Times "Direct and soulful" -Village Voice

She is wowing audiences from the Philharmonic halls of Russia - four sell out national tours - to the jazz clubs of Manhattan with her emotional depth, striking authenticity, charismatic stage presence and crackling humor. With three critically acclaimed albums already behind her, Souter has now released 'Beyond the Blue', her second on Motéma, which is being lauded as her breakout CD.

"Scintillating" -Boston Globe

"Startlingly fresh" -Washington City Paper

The album features Souter's own haunting and evocative lyrics, set to jazz arrangements of classical melodies from the European canon.
The Musicians Institute Venue, 6752 Hollywood Blvd false MM/DD/YYYY
