Continuum, A Journey Through Jazz
Episode 13: "Sultry Sirens"
Hosted and Produced by J. Scott Fugate, "The Jazz Evangelist"
As always, the show is free, absolutely legal, fun for the whole family, and available for listening right now, right here: http://bit.ly/b1amSb
The sultry summer sun continues to beat down here in the American southland where I reside - so I shall continue with sultry sounds suitable for the heat. Therefore, this episode consists entirely of vocal powerhouses singing and swinging in a sultry, bluesy style - such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Lorez Alexandria, Nina Simone, Christina Agulilera, Ann Hampton Callaway, Rene Marie, Kemba Cofield, and Annie Sellick.
It doesn't get this much better than this - so, find someplace to relax, click play, and allow the sirens to sooth and swing your soul. Enjoy the ride!
If there are any sultry sirens you would like to hear in next week's show - please let me know by dropping me a line at Scott@Soulandjazz.com
