NW veteran jazz and blues singer Maia Santell and her back up band House Blend perform their signature sound and style, which is delightfully refreshing and consistently swingin' and soulful!
Norm Bobrow, Seattle music critic, promoter and jazz entrepreneur says, "Maia Santell is a breath of fresh air....An absolute delight... She has indeed earned the title, "The Pacific Northwest Queen of Swing!"
Doug Bright of Seattle's Heritage Music Review says, "Maia Santell is one of the Northwest's most dynamic and refreshingly believable vocalists. Her phrasing is impeccable, and her voice is clear, warm, natural and totally free of the contrived theatricality that besets her contemporaries. Supported by the seasoned musicians of House Blend, she offers one of the most exhilarating sounds on the NW music scene."
Deanne Rossetti of Seattle Magazine says, "Maia Santell and House Blend handle jazz, blues, swing, Latin and big band with a polish and joy that comes from talent, experience and a deep seated love of jazz. You can feel the swing!"
House Blend instrumentalists featured on this video are Ted Dortch on tenor sax, Russ Kammerer on drums, Derick Polk on bass and Al Alto on guitar.
