Vincent and Denise Bates,creators of Jazz Suite Music Enterprises, LLC met in 2007, married 3 years later and they’ve been making wonderful music together ever since. Their love for jazz and the gospel inspired Denise to produce Vincent’s first Gospel (gospel cool) CD, “I Don’t Mind” (Jesus Has Called My Name).
In numerous occasions while composing, they discovered that their music had so much variety that it was very difficult to leave it in one category. Thus, “Jazz Suite” (the concept) was created to portray the various forms of jazz they play and compose. As a duo, they have performed for many private functions, which brings us to their COVER category that was created to showcase their unique rendition of popular songs. Anybody getting married? Give these two a call, they will add tone and depth to your private occasion. The SYNC category came about when Denise and Vincent discovered how easy it was to just come up with a diddy.
