Oakland singer-songwriter Alexa Weber Morales performs at Yoshi's Jack London Square with a crack team of musicians Tuesday, November 25 at 8 and 10 PM. The Alexa Weber Morales Band has enjoyed success throughout this year, starting with a three-night run at Jazz at Pearl's in San Francisco and continuing through the San Jose Jazz Festival. At recent shows, the
exuberant performer has emphasized the Brazilian segment of her repertoire, including selections from her Wayne Wallace-produced albums Vagabundeo and Jazzmérica; songs by Edu Lobo, Caetano Veloso and her own originals.

With her trademark spectrum of world music including salsa, Brazilian, Caribbean and funk, Alexa Weber Morales brings a refreshing authenticity to the stage. "I find her command of Latin idioms completely convincing, entrancing even," writes Village Voice critic Tom Hull, while the San Francisco Chronicle predicts, "With a voice sweet, pure and strong, Alexa Weber Morales is poised to ride the Bay Area Latin jazz scene to national recognition."

The Alexa Weber Morales Band includes Murray Low, piano; Omar Ledezma, percussion and vocals; David Belove, bass; Zareen, vocals; and Deszon X. Claiborne, drums. Both Murray and David are veteran studio musicians who can be heard on Alexa's two solo recordings.

These two shows are free of charge as a special "Audience Appreciation Night" at the peerless jazz club. Reserve your tickets online today ($3 service fee applies)!
