    Winner of Indie Music Channel's 2012 “Best Female Jazz Artist”, Mary Jenson is a vocalist from the Bay Area. Dubbed “Golden Voice” and “West Coast Cool”, Mary Jenson's soulful voice takes you on a journey through original music and masterfully reinvented jazz and contemporary covers. Whether performing in a duo or in an ensemble setting, her luscious, contemporary voice reflects today's evolution of Jazz. "What brought me to Jazz? A job right out of college at tiny radio station up on the Northern California Coast exposed me to Jazz in a big way. My audience was small but patient and happy to learn along with me as I explored a library of hundreds of LPs that lined the walls and exposed me to a whole new world of music. That’s where I discovered Chick Corea, Pat Metheney, Betty Carter and Carmen McRae. I heard Ron Carter play "Someday My Prince Will Come" and I was hooked." Born on an Air Force base in Biloxi, Mississippi, Mary Jenson is the 6th of 8 children. Her childhood as a military brat was a nomadic one, moving from Mississippi to California, Germany, Georgia, and then back again to California by the time she was 9 years old. She now makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mary released her second album 'BEYOND' in January 2011 at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland. This concept album was inspired by the the dream state, a human condition of vulnerability and wonder. This collection of originals, contemporary covers and beautiful Jazz standards is featured in Mary’s live performances. http://www.maryjenson.com/
