Jazz First with Vocalist Pamela Smith

Jazz First believes in the Great American Songbook, and feels those tunes should be preserved. Thus, much of the repertoire consists of jazz versions of this very listenable music by the masters (Porter, Gershwin, Rodgers, Strayhorn, etc.) written primarily in the first half of the twentieth century, with lyrical improvisations inserted for variety. But we also feature tunes written more recently, by composers such as Dave Frishberg, Mose Allison, and the bossa nova king, Antonio Carlos Jobim.
