During the past two decades, his varied career has included periods of intense performance and also of introspective creativity, and he has emerged as a major force in the contemporary jazz scene. Typhanie Monique has achieved international status as a rising star vocalist by immersing herself in her true passion. Versed in a wide range of genres and influences including jazz, funk, hip-hop, pop and improvised freestyle, the soulful-voiced chanteuse, bandleader and songwriter has earned a reputation as a fearless boundary-crosser and a natural born frontwoman with superb scatting chops and well-honed emcee skills. Since her Chicago debut more than a decade ago, Typhanie has held court at famous jazz clubs and major music festivals throughout the world.  Jeru is a pianoless quartet that began shortly after bassist Joe Policastro moved to Chicago early in 2003. Inspired by the Gerry Mulligan Quartet of the 1950s, the band takes its name from a nickname used by Miles Davis for Gerry Mulligan.
