Tianna Hall: Sid, Barney, Duke & Billy
AAJ: You are a recent mom about to become a recent mom-times-two. Has motherhood changed the way you listen to music, particularly in what you might consider now as possible material that you may not have considered before motherhood?
TH: I actually recorded my third album while very very pregnant [laughs]. Being the mother of a toddler has certainly changed a great deal of what I listen to since he's more interested in Sid the Science kid, Barney and Kipper the dog than Sarah Vaughan, John Coltrane and Bill Evans. Thankfully, he can dig it most of the time, though. He did, after all, go through the entire first nine months of his existence on the bandstand with me. I've been getting a lot of requests for a lullaby album with jazz roots lately. Perhaps one day.
