Jesse Cook
The Story
Finally, the CD that Jesse Cook's fans have wanted for years! Capturing the fire of his jaw-dropping live shows, Juno Award-winning rumba flamenco master Jesse Cook issues his first-ever live album, "Montreal". Recorded at the Metropolis Theater during Le Festival International de Jazz de "Montreal", the album features Cook's stand-out hits "Mario Takes A Walk", "Rattle And Burn", and "Fall At Your Feet" (featuring Danny Wilde on vocals). Cook's live shows - he performs regularly throughout his native Canada, the U.S., Asia, and points beyond - are notorious for drawing throngs of fans who sin and dance along during the entire performance. Those in attendance who may not yet be as familiar with his intoxicating rumba flamenco are quickly placed under the spell of passionate guitar work, Moorish rhythms, and Cook's smoldering on-stage charisma.
