With a smile in her voice, Maria’s impeccable articulation and precise diction captivate through a musical breeze of swinging standards, Brazilian rhythms and romantic ballads inspired by Nat King Cole, Freddie Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Karrin Allyson. As a vocalist and bandleader who has recorded with Richie Cole, Warren Vaché, George Robert, Torben Oxbol, Krishna Booker, Ian McDougall and Phil Dwyer, her début album Where or When has received rotation airplay on top jazz stations in New York, Denver, Denmark and Italy. In July 2014, Maria was interviewed by Erik Troe of Jazz Caravan on KUVO followed by a sold-out performance at Dazzle Jazz in Denver. In August 2015, she recorded a station ID for KUVO and appeared on JJ’s Breakfast Jazz to discuss her second CD, Smile. Maria is now recording her third album. Drawn to the Great American Songbook of perennial jazz standards, Maria is delighted to appear with her new team of Chris Sigerson on piano, Miles Hill on bass, and drummer Craig Scott.
