Leslie Vincent Quartet at Cafe Coda

Leslie Vincent Quartet at Cafe Coda

Oct 1, 7:00pm

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

Join us for an evening of jazz, soul, and pop with Twin Cities chanteuse Leslie Vincent!

Leslie Vincent is a Minneapolis jazz and Great American songbook singer known for her “trademark wit, soulful vocals, and riveting aural and stage presence" (Twin Cities Arts Reader). Described as a cross between Amy Winehouse and Madeleine Peyroux, Leslie brings a contemporary freshness to timeless tunes.

Originally a stage actor, Leslie spent years cultivating a theatre career before pursuing jazz after meeting and collaborating with renowned Minnesota pianist George Maurer.

“Leslie exudes confidence, humor, quirkiness, and the vocal range to knock down any song. And although she’s also involved in theater, nothing about the performance from last night felt scripted” - Music in Minnesota

In 2020, she released her debut album, These Foolish Things, timeless jazz classics arranged by Maurer. The release led to a feature on the cover of Lavender Magazine and a sold-out album release show at Crooners — one of the premier jazz venues in the Midwest.

Since then, she’s emerged as a celebrated local artist performing at Crooners, Icehouse, the Granada Theater, kj’s hideaway, garnering the attention of Jazz.88 and becoming a regular in-studio guest.

Leslie Vincent on vocal, with Ted Godbout on keys, Ted Olson on bass, Ben Ehrlich on drums, and Mitch Van Laar on trumpet bring you jazz classics and fresh arrangements.

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

Grazyna Auguscik – vocal
Matt Ulery – bass
John Kregor – guitar
Matt Gold – guitar
Jon Deitemyer – drums

Singer, composer, arranger, and producer Grazyna Auguscik has won the praise and admiration of music critics, jazz enthusiasts and even non-jazz audiences with a singular voice that speaks a universal language. She is one of the most intriguing contemporary vocalists on today’s world jazz scene. Her elusive style challenges traditional definitions of jazz and shows a vocalist and musician without boundaries. Her unorthodox approach to rewriting classic works pays tribute to their authors and at the same time is an adventure into uncharted territory. Her original music gives a fresh taste of uncanny flavor.

She began her professional music career in Europe, and then completed her studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1992. Since then she has become a prolific collaborator shearing the stage with such jazz notables as Michael and Randy Brecker, Jim Hall, John Medeski, Paul Wertico, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Robert Irving III, Michal Urbaniak, Urszula Dudziak, Terry Callier, Patricia Barber, John McLean, Ron Perrillo, and many others. Grazyna has recorded, produced and distributed 17 albums, 10 of which were under her own record label, GMA Records, and has appeared as a guest on as many projects.

Her album Pastels was chosen one of the best of 1998 by National Public Radio listeners. Her 2002 release River placed her as one of the hottest young jazz talents in the country. In 2003 Grazyna received Twirlie Nomination for Top 15 FEMALE VOCALISTS and was nominated for Best Female Vocalist of 2002 by 22nd Annual Chicago Music Awards. She was named Best Jazz Vocalist of 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2016 by a prestigious European Jazz Forum Magazine. In 2002 Fujitsu Concord Jazz Festival awarded her with the TOP VOCALIST title, and the album Homage – Three for Brazil recorded for Pony Canyon Records in Japan was on a TOP 20 JAZZ ALBUMS list in Asia. www.grazynaauguscik.com/

Bass: Matt Ulery -https://www.mattulery.com/about/
Chicago-based bassist/composer and bandleader, Matt Ulery, has developed an instantly recognizable sound. Known for his sweeping lyricism, unconventional phrase structures, and expressionistic emotionalism, Ulery’s music, from small, diverse chamber ensembles to full orchestras, is informed by the entire spectrum of jazz, classical, rock, pop, and folk– specifically American, South American, Balkan, and other European folk styles. He has been performing for 25 years on upright, electric, and brass basses.

Guitar: John Kregor - soundsandnotes.org/staff/john-kregor/In Austin in the late 90's, John Kregor studied guitar with Adam Holzman, jazz with Jeff Hellmer, and composition with Rick Lawn and Dan Welcher at the University of Texas. After graduating (Magna Cum Laude) in 2000 he moved up to Chicago to check out the scene. Since then he's had the good fortune to play with loads of great cats all over the world.

Guitar: Matt Gold is a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer based in Chicago. mattgoldmusic.com/

Drums: Jon Deitemyer has established himself as a unique and versatile voice in modern jazz drumming. After graduating from the esteemed University of North Texas (where he studied with Ed Soph and Lynn Seaton), Jon settled in Chicago and quickly became a fixture in the city's expansive creative music community. www.luc.edu/music/about/faculty/jondeitemyer.shtml
