The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Musician's Corner: Joanie Pallatto In The Middle of Life

Air Date: 5/21/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET


As vocalist Joanie Pallatto tells us on the next edition of Musician's Corner, the song title In the Middle of Life could also have been "In the midst of life." She does not intend your interpretation to mean something related to "mid-life," as in "mid-life crisis". Although of course, you can be in the middle of life during a mid life crisis!

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, I would like to suggest that you tune in this Sunday around 9am to hear Ms. Pallatto tell us about this song. 

Tune in Sunday around 9am during the Sunday Jazz Brunch to hear this edition of Musician's Corner with Joanie Pallatto.

She'll talk about how she came up with the lyrics, the melody, the intro, the interludes, the song form, and how she provides a 'palate cleanser' for the listener.

In one spot the song briefly shifts from major to minor key, and she explains where that is and sings it for you. You cannot but listen to the song with much greater appreciation than if you had not heard the talk beforehand.

The song comes from her new CD, Accidental Melody. The CD contains thirteen original songs, and is her fourth album of all original songs.

During the show you'll also hear a few tracks from Ms. Pallatto's previous CD, My Original Plan, released in 2021.

Very New

Several tracks in this show are new and never played before on SJB, including new material from Wayne Escoffery, Ken Fowser, George Coleman, and Jackie Ryan.

I hope you enjoy the show, and thanks for tuning in to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
