Jo Lawry: Acrobats

Read "Acrobats" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il merito va condiviso con la contrabbassista Linda May Han Oh e la batterista Allison Miller, magnifiche co-leader di un progetto di piena partecipazione collettiva.

Non è la sola, ci mancherebbe, però lei ha il ...

Australian vocalist Jo Lawry is quickly establishing herself among the top tier of current jazz vocalists. And she's doing it--at least some of the time--by being a sideman. Lawry hails from Adelaide, Australia. She's been in the U.S. for several years now pursuing advanced degrees in jazz, but she hasn't spent all her time studying.
