MAUREEN WASHINGTON QUINTET CD RELEASE
Time 8:00 pm
One of the most sought after vocalists on Vancouver Island, Maureen Washington, slips easily from sassy to sexy within a single line of lyrics, at times echoing the haunting tones of Etta James and Carmen McRae, then faster than the mind and ear can make the transition, Maureen Washington exudes the impish irreverence of Jann Arden and the vocal agility of Holly Cole. And yet, with all splendor attached to such comparisons, Maureen’s musical style remains distinctly her own. Currently she just finished her 9th album “Harvest Moon” recorded with Juno and Grammy award winning producer, Joby Baker. With Karel Roessingh Piano and a rhythm section to be announced.
