Grammy winner Secada returns to his roots (no, not his Latin roots, his
Jazz roots) with the release of Expressions: The Jazz Album.
Jon Secada is known by millions as an international superstar who has sold over 20 million
records worldwide, written and produced his own hits as well as those for such artists as Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez.
What many do not know is that Jon received his Master’s Degree in Jazz Vocal Performance from the University of Miami and finds much of his musical inspiration and passion for this album from such vocalists at Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Hartman and Joe Williams
Expressions: The Jazz Album is a stunning collection of new songs, classic standards and
Secada hits – all with a twist and Jon’s own jazz-flavored arrangements.
After starting his career as a songwriter and background vocalist for superstar Gloria Estefan, Jon’s 1992 self-titled debut album sold more than six million copies worldwide and was certified triple platinum in the U.S.A, where it reached No. 15 on the Billboard 200 chart. He later scored a Top 5 hit with the single “Just Another Day,” and three more top 30 hits, “Angel,” “I’m Free,” and “Do You Believe in Us?” The Spanish-language version of the album, “Otro Dia Mas Sin Verte,” became the Number One Latin album of 1992 and earned Jon his first Grammy Award, for Best Latin Pop Album.
