About the Artist
A man of many talents
and many more inspirations, Jesse Cook's range of musical tastes covers a wide array of genres that come together to form
a unique sound that critics hail as inventive and audiences crave. His inclinations for music ld him to the esteemed Berklee
College of Music in Boston, and it was there he honed his incredible dexterity with strings and a pick through classical and
jazz guitar. After graduating, Cook immersed himself in the oral traditions of Gypsy guitar, a rhythmic, flamenco-rumba approach
heard in French countryside, and his tastes continued to evolve and expand and include more and more genres. Today, Jesse
Cook is a man whose compass only points to great music, and he lets that take him wherever it may. Let StubHub take you to

Jesse Cook's fan base is as wide as his genres. In 2008 he achieved
a historic first by dominating both the smooth jazz radio charts and the Billboard New Age chart, the first with his single
Café Mocha and the second with his number one album Frontiers. His collaborations are equally diverse. Cook has contributed
to Afro Celt Sound System's album Seed, performed with soprano Charlotte Church and toured with legendary Irish rockers, The
Chieftains. In 2009 Acoustic Guitar magazine awarded Cook the silver Player's Choice Award in flamenco, second to his hero,
flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia, and like de Lucia, Cook continues to mesmerize audiences with his groundbreaking musical
visions and irresistible rhythms.
Cook worked for many years honing his skills
and becoming the legend he is today. But he reached a turning point in his career in 1995 at the Catalina Jazz Festival. Cook's
debut album Tempest was released right before the festival and through a deal with a company called Narada, Cook and his band
got a chance to perform during the festival. They were only slated to perform a small set in a bar downstairs from the main
stage. But when the audience heard this astounding music, they called for a longer performance on the main stage. Later in
the festival, Cook got that chance, and the audience was so appreciative that they gave him a ten-minute standing ovation.
Shortly after this career-making performance, his debut album hit No. 14 on the Billboard charts.
Cook is not only a talented musician, who can make any song his own, but he is a humble performer who gives everything he
has to create an enjoyable performance for his audience. From upbeat songs with rumba-style rhythms to hauntingly beautiful
ballads, every song is a gift to those who have gotten where he is today.
