Jesse Cook may have a simple name, but his music is anything but. A true world traveler, Cook grew up between France, Barcelona, and eventually Canada. His music is a reflection of those many places and many adventures. His guitar style is one of his own invention, which merges the worlds of flamenco, classical, and jazz.
His debut album Tempest was a smash landing in the top 15 on the Billboard charts, and garnering him a 10-minute standing ovation at the Catalina Jazz Festival. Since then he’s gone on to release eleven studio albums, six of which have gone Gold or Platinum. Cook has toured with some of the most legendary musicians of all time including BB King, Ray Charles, The Chieftains, and Diana Krall.
Cook’s newest album Beyond Bordersis just that, featuring the sounds that have made Jesse Cook the acoustic virtuoso he is. Blending the electric sounds of flamenco and rumba with the smooth elegance of acoustic jazz is second nature to Cook.
