Vanessa Rubin is diva that is on the cusp of becoming a true jazz legend. With a 25 year career on major labels recording with the greatest names in jazz including Monty Alexander, James Moody and Grover Washington Jr. her debut album Soul Eyes not only captivate the jazz world but also knocked the R&B and smooth jazz world off their feet. She defies categorization. With her crisp articulation, precise pitch, bluesy swagger and harmonic imagination, Rubin proves herself as much a musician as any of the all-star players behind her. Vanessa and her band will be flying from New York for this exclusive Jazz at Pearl's engagement!

Years of honing her craft, networking and performing internationally paid off in 1991 with her signing to RCA/Novus. Passionate phrasing, flawless delineation, scintillating emotion and skillful musicianship echo the excellence of her RCA albums: SOUL EYES, PASTICHE, I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU, VANESSA RUBIN SINGS and NEW HORIZONS. Her debut album, SOUL EYES, brought her wide recognition and respect in jazz circles and was cited by the Gavin Report as one of the best jazz albums in 1992. LANGUAGE OF LOVE and GIRL TALK, her current release on Telarc International, continues to keep her on the forefront as one of today's distinguishable interpreter of song. Vanessa has established herself as a premiere vocalist thrilling SRO audiences at prestigious venues and music festivals around the world. Dubbed one of the "Diva Nouvelles" by Essence Magazine, she continues to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by today's jazz scene.
