Artist Bio

Jacques Lesure‘s sound is steeped in the rich tradition of mentors like George Benson, Kenny Burrell, and a host of others, but expressed through his own voice. It’s no secret that his music is rooted in the foundations of gospel, blues, and improvised Black American music. It’s his belief that the sounds of today are equally as relevant as those of glorious days gone by. It is that synergy that makes his music swing with a style like no other.

Jacques is proudly associated with the prestigious WJ3 Records Imprint and now has three recordings as an artist on that label. All have received great reviews including a four-star rating by Downbeat Magazine and one of the “Top 100” on The Jazz Week chart. Learn more at
