Sign in to view read count Views
On the new episode of The Jazz Session, Jason Crane interviews vibraphonist and composer Cecilia Smith. Smith's new project, Dark Triumph (CEA Music, 2005) chronicles the life of her aunt, Victoria Lancaster Smith, through spoken word, improvisation, orchestral arrangements, members of the Boys Choir of Harlem, and a jazz rhythm section. This ambitious album originated when Victoria Smith showed Cecilia Smith an 8-bar melody she'd been carrying around in her head for six decades.
