Bio: With her 2010 release of "Billie & Dolly" Jacqui has achieved critical acclaim for deftly blending jazz, bluegrass and classical music into her signature sound called Frontier Jazz. Her second CD "Notes from the Frontier" is due out this summer. In the meantime, stay tuned for gig updates!
“Widening her celebration of American musical spirit, and again teaming with the Texas musicians she’s dubbed the Frontier Jazz Orchestra, Sutton opens with a “Summertime” that serves as splendid introduction to the steel of her pipes and the majesty of a voice that marries the earthiness of Cassandra Wilson to the warmth of Dianne Reeves. Jazz, bluegrass and honkytonk slip and slide together in Sutton’s crafty blend of “Hummingbird” and Dave Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo à la Turk,” while “Nature Boy” is reinvented as a fiery tango sung in English and Spanish. She unearths a pair of markedly different patriotic pieces from classical composer Lee Hoiby-the uplifting "Lady of the Harbor" and, revitalized as a bolero, the anthemic "Where the Music Comes From"-and dusts the twangy "Blue Mountain" with gentle jazz harmonies. But Sutton also appreciates when dramatic re-imaginings are neither appropriate nor required.”
