Maurice Jacox

    MAURICE JACOX is a bona fide legend in the Twin City music scene. He progressed from to flute to saxophone to vocals in his career starting out as a member of the iconic Willie and the Bumble Bees for 15 years. Then onto the R&B powerhouse, The Butane Should Review and fronting The Soul Tight Committee for 16 before moving out on his own to be front and center in the Nat King Cole tribute show, Straighten Up and Fly Right which took him all the way to Cuba to sing with the 350 member Cuban National Symphony Orchestra with Nachito Herrera. This multiple award-winning artist brings an organic blending of jazz, blues, R&B and soul to everything he’s a part of whether it’s “Stripped Down” with one of his trios/quartets or cranking his “sanctified” satisfying vocals or horn licks with his band MAURICE JACOX & We Still R. He is an eclectic mix of all these years of experience. To quote John Bream of the Star Tribune, “Mr. Everything”.
