The Great City

Featuring the music of Sasha Dobson
Duration: 4:09

On September 10, Sasha Dobson will release her long-awaited new album Girl Talk. To be issued digitally, as well as a CD and limited edition vinyl LP, 'Girl Talk' is the New Yorker's most personal album to date. “Over the years, I developed into a guitarist and songwriter,” she shares, “But in my heart and soul, I am a jazz singer and improviser. And this album represents something essential that I needed to do.” The first single is "The Great City", a Curtis Lewis tune first made famous by Nancy Wilson in 1960. The song crept into Dobson's mind during the lockdown last year. At a time when she witnessed New York gutted from the inside, she meditated on its pain and resilience, electing to film a music video as a tribute to the city she loves so much.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
