June Tabor

June Tabor is probably the finest female traditional British folksinger of the late 20th and early 21st centuries — if not the best British folksinger of her time, period. What links her to Britain's past traditions is the chilling and emotional qualities of her voice. What links her to the British present is her fine taste in material, arrangements, and backing musicians, along with a willingness to try different things and interpret work by contemporary songwriters. Tabor's first high-profile project was a duet album with Steeleye Span's Maddy Prior in the 1970s (the duo dubbed themselves the Silly Sisters for the occasion)

ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland

Read "ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Con gli anni, le voci hanno acquistato un carattere sempre più rilevante nel catalogo ECM rispetto ai tempi della sua fondazione, quando l'etichetta bavarese era rivolta alla pubblicazione di musica di carattere prevalentemente jazzistico e quasi esclusivamente strumentale. I primi nomi di cantanti a trovar spazio nel catalogo dell'etichetta sono stati quelli di Norma Winstone, Aina ...

The Art Of The Torch Singer, Piers Ford Reviews Man In The Long Black Coat and Durga Rising

There are three elders at the top of the tree when it comes to British female singers who have an instinctive ability to tell the whole story in a song: Norma Waterson, June Tabor and Barb Jungr. Forget any ungallant connotations. I use the word simply to connote wisdom and an almost forensic approach to their ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
