The GJCF spilled into a fourth day, with just a handful of gigs in pubs, a jam session led by trombonist Paul Dunlea in the Crane Lane Theatre and the final day of social dancing at the Cork Jazz Ball in the Camden Palace Hotel. The honor of closing the GCJF fell to Scottish indie-rock band Primal Scream, a band which has been together as long as Guinness has been sponsoring the GCJF. There were no reports of alternative rock versions of Mingus or Duke Ellington tunes but a packed arena proved that that there's plenty of elbow room for diversity at the GCJF. Roll on GCJF 2014!
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop. But nothing has touched my artistic sensiblities like JAZZ! Two years ago I moved to Sarasota, FL where I renewed my focus on my singing career and I was so impressed with the quality, quantity and generousity of talented jazz musicains in the Suncoast area. I soon partnered with piano legend Billy Marcus and his trio with Don Mopsick and Stephen Bucholtz. What a blast working with these guys and having them back me up on my first jaz album, Here's To You... which was just released on October 1st. I can't wait to see where the coming year brings me!
