Eventbrite - Alexis Cole with John DiMartino-The Lee Minton Signature Series

Called “one of the great voices of today” by SiriusXM’s Jonathan Schwartz, Alexis Cole has also been compared to classic jazz singers such as Anita O’Day and JazzTimes states, “Cole’s easy sense of swing is strongly reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan.”  Her luxurious voice and innovative interpretations make her an instant audience favorite with audiences. lexis will be joined for this performance by the wonderful pianist John di Martino.

Cole…displays an exuberant personality, outstanding diction, flawless pitch, and inspired scat technique, all qualities that should place her in the highest echelon of contemporary jazz singers… (She can)…communicate an intimate mood with great passion.”
— Thomas Cunniffe, Jazz History Online, March 2018

Alexis will be accompanied by jazz pianist, arranger and producer, John di Martino. He has been described as a “shape-shifter”, for his creativity across musical genres. John has performed and recorded with David “Fat Head” Newman,  Pat Martino, Houston Person and Taj Mahal.
