Her eleven recordings, which feature musical luminaries such as Fred Hersch, Eric Alexander, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Matt Wilson, have received high praise in the jazz press and are spun on radio world-wide. In addition to her many performances on great stages, Alexis can be seen at top jazz venues like Dizzy's Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Birdland, The Jazz Standard, Blues Alley, and Billboard Live, Tokyo. Cole is the recipient of a Swing Journal Gold Disk award, and was a winner of the NY Jazzmobile and Montreux Jazz Festival vocal competitions.

What the Press is Saying - Quotes

What the press is saying!!
Ms. Cole on piano, led a trio at The Falcon that included the superb bassist David Finck and the understated drummer Ken Hassler. Her repertoire was peppered with interesting standards that she played with an easy sense of swing and a genuine dose of emotion.
Among today’s singers, Cole’s style is refreshing. Her delivery is unforced with no frilly artifice, enabling her, her band mates and her audience to savor the rich lyrics she sings. Her infrequent scatting is tasty and always delivered in service to the material. And we always get a sense that she knows of what she sings.
