11-01-2019 12:00:00 11-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Alexis Cole | Time Varies Award-winning jazz vocalist Alexis Cole may be the most talented singer to ever hold top-secret military clearance. A dozen albums into her critically acclaimed career, she may also be the best-kept secret in jazz, a status that's certain to change as more people are discovering her for themselves. The year 2009 was a big one for Alexis: She released her first albums on both Motéma Music and Venus Records… and went to Basic Training to prepare for her new job as a jazz singer for the US Army. During her seven years in the Army's Big Band, Cole had the opportunity to grow as a musician and a person, sharing the stage with ensembles as diverse as the New York Philharmonic and Kool and the Gang. Alexis continued recording throughout her tour of duty, releasing a string of well-received albums, including four titles for Venus, two for Motema, and two on Chesky Records. She proved her versatility on everything from jazz standards to Paul Simon's lesser-known compositions, to Disney love songs to a project on which she teamed up with a fellow serviceman 50 years her senior, the legendary guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=346718 Minton's playhouse Minton's playhouse
