NAC Presentation

Presented by Ontario Scene


Something special happens when JESSE COOK takes the stage. Inspired by childhood summers spent in the gypsy barrio in Arles, France, and impromptu jam sessions with Nicolas Reyes, lead singer of the Gipsy Kings, Jesse comes by his love of rumba flamenco quite naturally. At the age of three, he picked up a guitar and tried to emulate the finesse of gypsy guitar legend Manitas de Plata, and has never looked back.

Jesse has been writing, recording, and performing internationally for nearly 20 years, and is a JUNO Award-winner and three-time recipient of the Canadian Smooth Jazz Award for Guitarist of the Year. His sizzling, precise playing and captivating compositions are equal parts epic and disarming. A truly generous performer, Jesse has rightly claimed his place on the international stage.
