Popular jazz compositions and original works of Tessa Souter. In addition, the singer will present the viewer with new works from the fifth album “Picture in Black and White (Noa)”, on which she is currently working. The new album of the singer, as a tribute to her parents, is dedicated to the representatives of the black and white race.
Born of English and Trinidadian parents, New York-based, vocalist, Tessa Souter – an amazing natural talent whose crystal clear voice has captivated audiences all over the world – has a distinctive and exotically beautiful style of jazz which evokes Andalusian Spain, North Africa and the Middle East, as well as the Celtic folk music she grew up listening to. “Magnificent! She blew me away!” said soul-jazz legend, Jon Lucien. “Her voice is sinuous and elastic, stretching and caressing a melody with an actress’ sense of the emotional meaning of each lyric,” said the Philadelphia City Paper. “Her rendition of ‘The Creator Has A Master Plan’ proves that it is possible to be both sensual and spiritual at the same time,” said the New York Sun. And, in a rave review of her California debut in the Los Angeles Times, Don Heckman called hers “one of the most imaginatively programmed vocal sets of recent memory.”
