Erin McDougald: Outside the Soiree

Read "Outside the Soiree" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

That identity carries into her singing which comes across with a confidence and flair you rarely hear among younger jazz vocalists today. With her voice carrying a low, sultriness ...

Dida Pelled: Telling Stories And Serving Songs

Read "Dida Pelled: Telling Stories And Serving Songs" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

She's equally comfortable playing straight-up jazz at Smalls ...
