"HELP A GOOD GIRL GO BAD!"
Our new CD, "Help a Good Girl Go Bad", is available on CD Baby and ITunes as well as at our live gigs. Enjoy some of the tunes while you explore the website.
"Swervy, slightly vampy vocals..."
"Throaty, deep sensual tone..."

"A standard, classic kind of sound... An old-school singer"
"I'm cruising west on Highway 120, coming home from Sonora, there’s no moon at all, the night is as black as ink, and Wendi Maxwell is singing in my ear. I'm listening to the latest release from Wendi Maxwell & Tres Hot Jazz, Help a Good Girl Go Bad, and I’m listening for the second time. The first taste was for the story the album tells, now I'm listening for the individual tracks, and I'm getting lost in the story, once again..."
"Others may have written the 13 songs on Help a Good Girl Go Bad, but the choices, as always, are all Wendi’s, and by the end, along with the unstoppable Tres Hot Jazz, she makes her own unique mark on every single track. If you haven’t gotten hip to the fact that I really, really like this CD, get hip now, and get Help a Good Girl Go Bad, right now. How often do you have the opportunity to include a local artist like Wendi Maxwell in your playlist, and then go see her and her band in some of the best local venues? Not often, so Help a Good Girl Go Bad while she's hot, and support local artists who compete with the big boys. After all, it's lonely at the top, and Wendi Maxwell & Tres Hot Jazz are at the top of their game." (3/15/14)
The Record featured a full-sized article about Wendi and the band. Read all about how Wendi took a song from a scavenged garage-sale CD and turned it into a full three-act jazz musical. Our debut CD - "NO MORE BLUES!" sold out the first printing in just six weeks. Four years later, fans are still enjoying the jazz-happy offering, now in its fourth printing. Only a few copies remain, but you can download all the tunes. Available now from CD Baby. And we have found ours at Mile Wine Company in Stockton California. Come join us for casual jazz evenings every month. (Check the calendar for specific dates.) Music starts at 7:30, with no cover charge.
Mile Wine is located at 2113 Pacific Avenue, in the heart of Stockton's Miracle Mile.

"Help a Good Girl Go Bad" is now on internet radio in Europe! Thanks to Virginia Muse of Amsterdam, who picked up our video for her internet-based Virginia Music.
EVERY JAZZ BAND NEEDS A HOME... Mile Wine Company voted San Joaquin 2015 "Best Music Venue!"
We are hard at work on original compositions for our third album, due out... sometime. In the meantime you can download or purchase our first two albums on Amazon or CDBaby.
