Jazz Xpressions concerts will take you back to familiar jazz standards like Killer Joe, Mercy Mercy Mercy, Summertime, and Watermelon Man, just to name a few, with a modern day flair creating a nostalgic feeling for audiences who are more versed in music history and have a deep appreciation for American music.  At the same time the band's musical interpretations create enough edge to earn the interest of younger audiences who may not be quite as versed.  Our music also travels through the 70's to include the sounds of Al Green, The Crusaders, James Taylor and more.  Last but not least Jazz Xpressions regularly performs original songs that merge various styles such as latin, pop and RnB flavors to promote a clear authentic message encouraging it's listeners to keep hope alive and continue to persevere despite the turbulent days ahead. Lydia Salett Dudley is the bandleader for the group Jazz Xpression,  (Mercy Records)  based in Raleigh NC. The band has released several projects comprised of uniquely arranged jazz standards, holiday music and a array of various styles of modern jazz.  Her latest project was funded through a grant for female bandleaders, provided by Chamber Music America in NY including a guided mentorship with Grammy Nominated Jazz Artist Carmen Lundy. The project "Rise Up" will be released in the fall of 2023.  For more information please email LSALETT@GMAIL.COM
