Lakecia Benjamin Quartet Ultimo

Concert or Performance

13 Nov 2019

Lakecia Benjamin is a badass, in the best possible sense of the word. The New York City native saxophonist/bandleader is more than just a player, she’s a vocalist and a lyricist, and a cross-cultural force of nature who has played consistently with the greatest jazz, funk, hip hop and pop talent. Bringing the fire and rhythmic energy of funk to her original material, Lakecia has also contributed energetic horn arrangements, collaborating with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Missy Elliot, The Roots, Santigold, Anita Baker, Macy Gray and Kool and The Gang, Talib Kweli and many more!

Despite her jazz, RnB and funk pedigree, Lakecia trained in Latin dance music, playing salsa and merengue. Soon after starting lessons, Lakecia was introduced to the music of Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, the rest is history. Cross-pollination has continued throughout her career as a player and performer, seeing Lakecia mark the disparate worlds of pop, hip hop and jazz with her trademark confidence and molten energy.
