About The Event

JACQUES LESURE IS A DETROIT, MICHIGAN NATIVE, HOWEVER,HE IS CURRENTLY A RESIDENT OF INGLEWOOD, CALIFORNIA.  HIS CLASSIC STYLE, ALONG WITH HIS INNOVATIVE, YET SINCERE APPROACH TO THE MUSIC, ARE  INTEGRAL PARTS OF HIS SIGNATURE SOUND.

IT'S A SOUND STEEPED IN THE RICH TRADITION OF MENTORS LIKE GEORGE BENSON, KENNY BURRELL AND A HOST OF OTHERS, BUT  EXPRESSED THROUGH HIS OWN VOICE.  IT’S NO SECRET THAT HIS MUSIC IS ROOTED IN THE FOUNDATIONS OF GOSPEL, BLUES AND IMPROVISED BLACK AMERICAN MUSIC. IT’S HIS BELIEF THAT THE SOUNDS OF “TODAY” ARE EQUALLY AS RELEVANT AS THOSE OF GLORIOUS DAYS GONE BY. IT IS THAT SYNERGY THAT MAKES HIS MUSIC SWING WITH A STYLE LIKE NO OTHER.

JACQUES IS PROUDLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE PRESTIGIOUS WJ3 RECORDS  IMPRINT AND NOW HAS THREE RECORDINGS AS AN ARTIST ON THAT LABEL. ALL HAVE RECEIVED GREAT REVIEWS INCLUDING A FOUR STAR RATING BY DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE  AND ONE OF THE “TOP 100” ON THE JAZZ WEEK CHART.
