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.

Vocal magic, dexterity and adventure. She has explored the sounds of American music foundations by going back in time. Expertly she interprets vintage country blues and folk in gently provocative fresh and creative ways. Roots music and Americana infused with jazz and blues spices her original compositions and then she just sings them for you and sings them so you don’t forget.

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. Fearlessly and fiercely going as far as to be outspoken about what he observed.

The Artistry of ... Paul Desmond
