Backed by a 9-piece band that bounds from fearless jazz to irresistible salsa, Grammy-nominated vocalist Alexa Weber Morales performs originals from her third album, which was fan-funded on Kickstarter.com.
I Wanna Work For You is Alexa's first all-original album. Like all her work, it melds funk, jazz, Brazilian and salsa grooves; the 10 tunes ruminate on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and naked grabs for power, misguided love affairs and tired marriages, stratospheric self-actualization and gender-bent blues.
