Jazzbestos brings the standards to life in an approachable, sophisticated way. Kirsten Cook's vocals have a vintage sweeetness not often found in today's offerings while Eric Arnold's guitar takes simple accompaniment into a new art form


Eric Arnold and Kirsten Cook formed Jazzbestos in February of 2005. Since then they have been performing the music of Cole Porter, Count Bassie, Jerome Kern, Nat King Cole, and the Gershwins (to name only a few) to appreciative audiences throughout the Seattle area.
