    The Artistry Of...

    The Artistry Of highlights, reflects, and celebrates. It mixes and shares language from different artistic disciplines; a musician is a poet; a singer’s voice is described as colorful, and an artist stuns and blinds your senses with the brilliance of their creative energy and expression.

    Listen for The Artistry Of - Wednesday evenings in the third hour of Dinner Jazz on JAZZ.FM91.

    The Artistry of... Monty Alexander

    Written by John Devenish

    Monty Alexanderr floats like a jazzed up tropical butterfly and swings like no other. He is sometimes the whole band and other times as sweet as a most sugary confection from the land of his birth, Jamaica. The spicing with Caribbean rhythms and the staples of all-American jazz make the experience of listening to him as musically diverse as the out of one, many diaspora he is so much a part of… Like the melange of cuisines that come from the Caribbean to the appreciation and play with music that is true to the region Alexander’s artistry is what world music is all about.

    The Artistry of... Christian Scott

    Written by Dani Elwell

    Horn man Christian Scott artistically knows no boundaries.  And it’s not some lost, pie in the sky dream, it’s a feet firmly planted, getting it done exercise of pushing and trying, expressing and exploring.

    The Artistry of... Sarah Vaughan

    Written by John Devenish

    She could sing like she had the weight of a lifetime on her shoulders. She was affectionately known as both "Sassy" and "The Divine One," My father always called her the Divine Miss Sarah Vaughan.

    The Artistry of... Denzal Sinclaire

    Written by John Devenish

    He sounds like he is right beside you. Like if you turned the music would be coming from right there…Warm and full, emotional, reserved and direct. All of these words are what he does with his voice. The color is the color of the soul and everything he sings becomes his soul music – his soul’s music. There is a strong ownership – He sounds like that. That’s the way to describe it really. It is new and engaging.

    Written by John Devenish
