A San Diego native and graduate of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, vocalist Johnaye Kendrick has worked with many contemporary jazz legends, including Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Danilo Perez, Christian McBride, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ellis Marsalis, and Brian Blade. Kendrick was also featured on the Grammy-winning 2009 album by Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Book 1. When not touring with her own group, she serves as assistant professor of jazz voice at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. Trumpeter Nicholas Payton raved, "Johnaye has the potential to be a vocalist of the highest order; the likes of which we have seen seldom since the grande dames of the golden era of jazz roamed about the earth."
