Jocelyn Medina Quartet

Jocelyn Medina Quartet:
Jocelyn Medina - voice
Art Hirahara Music - piano
Thomson Kneeland - bass
Ross Pederson - drums

The sounds and styles of Brooklyn-based vocalist/composer Jocelyn Medina cross cultures, creeds and continents. Her latest album, COMMON GROUND, fuses jazz harmonies with raga-based melodies from India and polyrhythms from Africa to create an exciting new soundscape. As a storyteller, Medina’s lyrics recount personal experiences that reflect universal themes and a socially conscious worldview. Jocelyn celebrates the New Jersey Release of Common Ground at the Fox & Crow presenting material from the new CD and arrangements of jazz and Brazilian standards, accompanied by Art Hirahara on piano, Thomson Kneeland on bass, and Ross Pederson on drums.

“Medina offers the jazz listener a musical journey that takes the foundation of Latin and Jazz idioms and successfully redefines the experience with thought provoking lyrics and vocal abilities far beyond the norm. Medina uses her voice as an instrument and storyteller, and invites the listener to delve into the corners of their mind with lyrics that reflect life and human conditions…” (Constance Tucker, All About Vocals)
