Thana pays tribute to the First Lady of Song

"Croatian-American Thana Alexa is a different breed of singer. The young, beautiful, and enormously talented winner of the 2011 Jazzon Alpe-Adria International Award for songwriting routinely forces herself to grow by playing with some hard-hitting jazz musicians. Yet, she manages to assert her own style that's a lot more accessible to all audiences than most of those jazz musicians can imagine. In her new Jazz Village debut album, Ode to Heroes, Alexa throws herself into a recording of mostly original, totally captivating compositions that embrace the jazz, pop, and world music of her liking - with the force of intimidating musicianship that would send any other singer running for the hills."
