Roland Guerin Band feat. Quiana Lynell is a project that was conceived for the 34th edition of JazzAscona by acclaimed New Orleans bassist, singer, and songwriter Roland Guerin. An eclectic, highly skilled musician who draws from a wide spectrum of genres, including modern jazz and grass roots, Guerin has collaborated with important artists such as Marcus Roberts, Allan Toussaint, Nicholas Payton, or Mark Whitfield, to mention a few.
At JazzAscona 2018 Guerin will be accompanied by his band that brings together some of the Crescent City’s best young musicians: pianist Kyle Roussel, trumpeter Ashlin Parker, percussionist Alexey Marti or guitarist Chris Adkins, who will also be performing in Ascona with various other bands. The band’s singer is the rising star of vocal jazz, Quiana Lynell. Winner in 2017 of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, she will perform in Switzerland for the first time. Quiana Lynell harnesses her warm and velvet voice as a true instrument and critics are sure her career promises to be bright.
