    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.

    She’s a jazz acrobat. To make up a word… a jazz-ro-bat! The piano is her landscape of virtuoso expression. She electrifies and eclipses.

    Vocal magic, dexterity and adventure. She has explored the sounds of American music foundations by going back in time.

    He was the personification of an intense and impassioned respect and belief in jazz music. Like a warrior he defended the art form to anyone he felt got in its way. In the 60s and early 70s he challenged what he saw as a lack of understanding and respect for the history and validity of the music.
