Story
Introduction
Update: Alexa launches a timely Kickstarter project, I Wanna Work For You. These ten original tunes are arranged by bassist Sam Bevan and featuring top Bay Area musicians.

Since 2004, multilingual singer-songwriter Alexa Weber Morales has made nine studio recordings, including her two solo albums, Jazzmérica and Vagabundeo, and an EP, From Me To Yule. Most recently, her vocals graced the 2010 Grammy-nominated latin jazz album Bien! Bien!

Named “one of the greatest Bay Area recordings in recent times” by Latin Beat magazine, Vagabundeo made top-20 airplay nationwide. Her soulful lead singing and lyric contributions to multi-Grammy nominee Wayne Wallace's 2007 date The Reckless Search for Beauty received acclaim from around the world (check out Alexa singing a salsa version of "Use Me" and a Spanish version of "Afro Blue").

Alexa is a dynamic and honest-to-goodness stage performer who counts sold-out shows at Yoshi's, Jazz at Pearl's, Cafe Cocomo, San Jose Jazz Festival and the Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society to her name. She's also played Sonoma Jazz + Wine Festival, The Improv San Jose, The Little Fox in Redwood City, the Fillmore Salsa Festival, Santana Row, the Monterey Blues Festival (opening for Lenny Williams of Tower of Power), the Reno Jazz Orchestra, the Artichoke Festival (opening for Average White Band) and venues in Boston, Austin and Los Angeles. She plans to develop a touring show in the near future.

Rio de Janeiro–based producer Arnaldo DeSouteiro (João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfá) calls her original compositions “rhythmically captivating and entrancing.” A June 2008 DownBeat review of Vagabundeo enthuses, “Her large-scale skill and talent encourages her all-inclusive dreams” and praises her “gorgeous articulation, flowing time sense and warm tone.”

That made me laugh out loud. I feel like you could have cleaned up the edges, relined, refilled and blotted with chalk 5-50 more times though.

Wow, this is so cool! Brent Fischer (Grammy-winning producer, composer, arranger and son of latin jazz great Clare Fischer) did the orchestral arrangement for this incredible track!!!!

+Dave Padilla Hi Dave, thanks for commenting! So far, I haven't missed any of the stuff I've donated to Goodwill and friends. But there are still lots of things to go through...
