Over the past two decades no North American musician has done more to showcase the extraordinary array of jazz talent flowing from Cuba than Canadian soprano saxophonist/flutist Jane Bunnett. She scored her fifth Juno, the Canadian Grammy, with her latest album Jane Bunnett & Maqueque (Justin Time), featuring an extraordinary all-female Cuban sextet. Maqueque brings together a bevy of rising stars, including vocalist/violinist Elizabeth Rodriguez and drummer Yissy García, daughter of Irakere drummer Bernardo García. Together Bunnett and Maqueque offer a rhythmic and vocal feast, with kinetic arrangements, dazzling scatting, and sensuous soprano sax lines.
