Female Vocalists

Air Date: 4/18/2021

I've been waiting for the next batch of excellent female vocalists, and it has arrived. It's funny how that works - certain categories seemingly coming in batches. 

Veronica Swift's new CD This Bitter Earth is one of those CDs. Ms. Swift garnered two JazzTimes 2019 awards: 2019 Best New Artist and Best Vocal Release poll. Hear her sing a gentle number during the second half of your Contemplative Hour.

Also in the category is Lauren White's new CD, Ever Since the World Ended.  During the first hour, you'll hear her version of Karrin Allyson's Some of That Sunshine. Then during hour two, get ready for a unique, jazzy version of Bill Withers' Just The Two of Us.

I'm sure I have written about this before, but Georgia Mancio's new CD with Alan Broadbent is superb. The tracks on Quiet is the Star get better with each listening. Opening up hour two, listen to the dark song Night After Night.

New artists for the SJB include Isaiah J.Thompson, a young new pianist. Also we have the Ian Charlton Big Band and the young tenor saxophonist Jack Brandfield.

Getting back to hour one for a moment, check out the little James Taylor tribute with Lori Bell and Ron Satterfield, and then the George Kahn Quartet. I've heard it said that Ron Satterfield sings more like James Taylor than James Taylor himself!

Thanks for listening to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
