Eugenia Méndez – A star in the jazz firmament
…a truly passionate interpretation giving each phrase and
note its value and quality, which makes its exceptional in all this
Whether it’s in Spanish, English, French or German, Eugenia
communicates her sensuality, her passion, her commitment and
the charm of that eternal strive for romance…
From Finland with love by Roberto Aymes
…Mendez knows how to approach the classic jazz while she
overcomes the traditional genres of the Venezuelan and World
music, blues, bolero, tonada- through a well-measured and well
played professional improvisation in a original tropical jazzy way
from a genuine but intense Caribbean musical style.
The Vaudeville of EUGENIA MENDEZ
Eugenia Méndez: she can research and search, test, interpret
and perform the “classic” popular repertoire through her own
personality, allowing the audience to experience many important
“surprises” to get us out of the “deja vu”, the boredom, and lethargy
of the already seen, studied, and commercialized.
