How much do we appreciate the rare talents of Veronneau?  This is how much: a third visit to the show!

It's actually a no-brainer...Lynn Veronneau - the amazing Quebec-born singer in the group - and her charming husband, British guitarist Ken Avis, are so bloody entertaining :)  Hah!  Besides that, this lovely couple - and their bandmates David Rosenblatt and Pete Walby - are getting strong buzz in this part of the country.  And beyond.  Veronneau's latest work, "Jazz Samba Project", was in more than one Best of 2012 list.  And no wonder...it was a collective love song to celebrate 50 years of "Jazz Samba" - the album that launched a thousand trips to record stores all over the U.S. in the 60's.  Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz changed the flavor of Jazz in America with their passionate interpretations of the music that was captivating Brazil.  What Veronneau has done shines a light on those times.  And re-creates the feeling of an exciting, beloved - and page-turning chapter in Jazz history.

We'll hear three tracks from this luminous CD - and get the lowdown on what's happening with Veronneau - certainly a source of pride for the Washington, D.C., area - since Lynn, Ken, David and Pete all live in its shadow.  But at this point?  Known internationally! 

And here's a chance to celebrate the success of this ensemble - World Jazz, if you will - with Lynn singing in French, Portuguese and Spanish - as well as English.  The beautiful acoustic stylings of Veronneau will enchant you on January 26th - when they bring their simply sophisticated sound to Baltimore. 

We'll hear the details during the 2 p.m. hour of "Hybrid Jazz."  Of course, the fun - including the "Joie de Vivre" of Veronneau music  - starts at ONE, Eastern time :-D
