Dee Dee Bridgewater - May Artist of the Month

For fifty years now, vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater has been everywhere that Jazz has been.  Some of her most decorated projects in recent memory are reflections on her roots, and on the masters of Jazz. She diverted before that from the Jazz base to build a persona in disco and contemporary pop music.

Madeleine Peyroux - April Artist of the Month

Andre Previn – Swinging West Coast Romantic

Roy Haynes - March Artist of the Month

For many jazz listeners, knowing who’s playing the music can seem like too much needless insider information, like an over-detailed menu at an over-the-top restaurant. Who really cares what the chickens ate on the farm? Is hydroponic spinach supposed to taste better, or just sound fancy?  And what the heck is ‘salsify’ and why I would want to eat it anyway?
