Albums released since 2004 by Grammy-winning Pacific Mambo Orchestra singer-songwriter Alexa Weber Morales include Jazzmérica, Vagabundeo and the Christmas EP From Me To Yule. Alexa’s latest collection of quirky gender-bending, acoustic-leaning, rhythm-driven originals, I Wanna Work For You, was Kickstarter-funded by fans and received the Latin Jazz Corner’s Outer Edges Award.
“During times of discontent and social unrest, ferocious jazz will explode from musicians, filled with tension and passion….Vocalist Alexa Weber Morales tapped into a collective feeling of discontent around the current economy and job market while creating material for her new album I Wanna Work For You….Morales’ keen awareness of the world around her, coupled with her strong sense of musicality and experience in the Latin Jazz world makes I Wanna Work For You a great listen. It’s a wonderful example of an artist expressing the struggles and desires of her generation through her medium.”
