Oct 6 - Delphine Cortez with the Joel Robin Quintet

Delphine Cortez performs with uniquely captivating style, grace and creativity. Her “scat chops” and ability to interpret and compose lyrics on the fly is truly remarkable. International jazz journalist Patricia Myers has said of Delphine, “Delphine Cortez literally takes possession of each song so firmly that one does not think of comparing Delphine’s style to anyone else’s – Delphine sings as only Delphine can. Her voice evokes warmth and passion with remarkable depth and range.”

Delphine will be accompanied by the Joel Robin Quintet. Joel, who is executive director of Jazz in AZ, “pretended to play” piano when he was 3, took 22 lessons when he was 7, quit the piano until he was 10 and then “got hooked on jazz.” A few sessions at Juilliard School in New York City enhanced his talent and the “rest is all by ear,” he said.
