[CUBAN JAZZ POP] When Jessie Marquez, now based in Portland, first visited her father's childhood home in Cuba in 1996, hearing the familiar filin—the Cuban musical style based on American jazz and Brazilian bossa nova—drew her to singing the music herself. She eventually performed around the island of its origin and topped the jazz charts in Latin America, Europe and the U.S. Her vocal style—paradoxically warm and cool at once—reaches back to classic bossa but adds a Caribbean lilt. She's abetted by Portland jazz vets pianist Clay Giberson, bassist Al Criado, percussionists Charlie Doggett and Rafael Trujillo and saxophonist John Nastos. BRETT CAMPBELL.
