I just saw this performance photo of myself from the International Association of, and Women in Jazz festival last Spring–I didn’t know they’d posted on. Thank you to them for mounting my photo in their slide show. The festival will be held in April, and it is a fun event–open mike, workshops, and an amazing concert. Maybe I’ll even bring my chocolate-covered rum cake again….
On another subject, I was shocked–and pleased– to see a cabaret singer promoted on today’s edition of The View! AT LAST! Before Emmy Rossum (from the show Shameless) sang, they carefully explained what type of music cabaret involves, and of course discussed her new album, Sentimental Journey. Both the Jazz and Cabaret communities are concerned about the lack of interest in non-rock music from the network TV shows, so Kudos to the view for showcasing a young singer. Now if they would follow up with a more experienced singer as well–so people could compare the differences, that would be great….
