"Yesenia" Jazz Group is from the city of Vancouver on Canada's pacific west-coast. Drummer Brian Anthony Rask and guitarist Lew Sammartino met at a weekly jam session in the mid 90's and from there the two began to collaborate and went on to later form the group "Yesenia" in 1996.
At the heart of Yesenia's sound is a spirit of joyful musical exploration that draws from a wide scope of musical genres infusing elements of Blues, R&B, Jazz, Fusion, Latin, Rock and World music. Their artistic influences are as diverse and colorful as the music they play.
From a duo to a quintet Yesenia's original compositions and Open Jams are played with a classic and contemporary attitude. Yesenia Jazz Group's spirited interpretations of jazz standards and popular music is a treat to hear for all those who enjoy an inspired and fresh creative approach to live music performance.
