• PRESS PLAY: Nicole Henry Serves Sensual Jazz Without Gimmicks

    The evening’s high point came when Henry sang Bob Marley’s “Waiting In Vain,” placing even the waitstaff in a trance. As if the reggae legend’s lyrical plea to his love could be any more romantic, Henry’s voice, accompanied by the gentle rifts of an electric guitar, added a layer of satin to the song, making it not only romantic, but sensual.

    “Oh, I don’t wanna! I don’t wanna! I don’t wanna! I don’t wanna wait in vein,” Henry purred.

    Her physical appearance merits the same response as her voice. With her toned arms and sun kissed maple syrup skin, it’s hard not to be in awe of the Miami native’s beauty.

    “I had to wear a dress to compete with this view,” she told the audience with sass and a smile.

    It’s unfair to try and make you understand the wonder of Henry’s voice. You have to experience it live. It’s also a grave injustice to put it in a box of any type of definition. Henry’s skill allows her to frolic within the realms of jazz, soul, funk and rhythm and blues. Her voice is too big for any kind perimeters or limitations.

    Nicole Henry is a talented chanteuse who only needs a mic.
