Female Vocalists, New Material

Air Date: 7/11/2021

I've discovered that the category of female jazz vocalists exhibits a cyclical nature; that is, new releases come in waves. And at the moment, we have a wave!

On this edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch you'll hear a track or two from our spotlight vocalists: Anaïs Reno, Tanya Dennis, Joanie Pallatto, Jacqui Naylor, and Zoe Carter-Fitzgerald.

Beginning during hour one, we have Tanya Dennis singing the title number from her new cd, White Sails Blue Skies, a tribute to the boating life. I felt something when listening to her songs, and now I know that if I imagine myself on a sailboat on a clear summer morning, then that's where this song wants me to be and what it wants me to feel.

Also during hour one we have seventeen-year-old Anaïs Reno. In between her drama studies at Laguardia High School for the Performing Arts in New York City, she has time to record an Ellington/Strayhorn tribute CD! We''ll hear Strayhorn's Daydream during the hour.

Georgia Mancio and Alan Broadbent

Here's a nice writeup on Zoe Carter-Fitzgerald, an eclectic singer with roots in Americana and blues. Her latest CD Waterlines, only her second, features jazz and country along with blues and Americana based music. The track I picked for you to end the first hour is probably a jazz tune. 🎷😎

Jacqui Naylor has been singing her own eclectic form of jazz since 1998, when she released her self-titled debut album. During hour two you'll hear a track from her newest CD -- her thirteenth album, titled The Long Game

Joanie Pallatto features the excellent guitarist Fareed Haque, and we hear a tune from her new CD My Original Plan that showcases Mr. Haque as well as pianist Bradley Parker-Sparrow.

Also featured is vocalist Georgia Mancio. Her new CD with pianist/composer/arranger Alan Broadbent is called Quiet is the Star. Ms. Mancio has a pure, angelic voice. It is clear from all the tunes that there is a perfectly 'simpatico' musical relationship between the two artists. And I always use that cute picture whenever the opportunity arises!

I hope your summer is going well, and thanks for listening to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
