Tell us a little about your background...

Carolena Mátus is a classically trained singer, with over 30 years of vocal experience, who spent the majority of her career living and performing in Las Vegas, Nevada. Making her first public appearance as a soloist at 7 years of age (piano and voice duo), she later went on to begin her formal vocal training at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas at the age of 13.

In childhood, Carolena developed a passion for big band JaZz due to her father's influence and while she was exposed to other genre's, her love of the standards stayed with her. Although her formative training and experience was based in opera, classical and musical theatre, in the mid-1980's she was introduced, through a friend and former band member, to Frank Sinatra, Jr. and her love of JaZz was reborn anew ...

www.CarolenaMatus.com

Carolena has been strongly influenced by multiple exceptionally talented jazz musicians who are dear close friends, primary of whom is her primary pianist Randy Halberstadt, past accompanist Joe Baque (piano), as well as: Bobby Scann (trombone), John Stowell (guitar), Archie LeCoque (former lead trombone, Stan Kenton Orchestra), Herbie Phillips (trumpet / flugelhorn / arranger, unfortunately now deceased), the great Carl Fontana (trombone, unfortunately now deceased) and last, but certainly not least, Frank Sinatra, Jr., as it was he who re-introduced her to jazz.

When not busy performing she teaches in the Carolena Mátus Voice Studio, lending her 30+ year vocal expertise to beginning students in private sessions, encouraging their talent and musical self-confidence to grow in a safe, supportive environment. She also teaches singers with more experience who have either hit plateau's or who have sustained vocal injury due to lack of proper training, including actively performing professional singer/musician's in a variety of genre's.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Wayne Shorter Travels The Spaceways

A new album by the octogenarian saxophonist is always a big deal, but his latest — and the winner of the 2018 Jazz Critics Poll — is also just plain big: 3 discs and an 84-page graphic novel.

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.

'Jazz Night In America' Remembers Artists We Lost In 2018

Friends of the show offer memories and music of pianist Cecil Taylor, Village Vanguard owner Lorraine Gordon, South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and trumpeter Roy Hargrove.

Nate Chinen's Favorite Albums Of 2018

For NPR Music's jazz critic and the editorial director of WBGO, 2018 was a year that saw music — not just jazz — in the throes of a creative boom, rocketing in many directions.
