How wonderful to have two internationally known vocalists with such incredible reputations! We'll start our show at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on 6/5 - so that we can make room for the intensely versatile, passionate and persuasive Allison Crockett. Pianist and composer as well as songstress of rare ability, Alison was steeped in education at Temple University and the Manhattan School of Music. While in New York, her path crossed with DJ/Producer King Britt (Digable Planets), who promptly nicknamed our guest Diva Blue. Alison and her True Believer teamed to make a success of the Sylk 130 album, "When the Funk Hits the Fan" - that featured "Seasons Change." Delving into Hip Hop and more variable Jazz, Alison worked with the Greg Osby Band - then US3 in the U.K. With three musical projects or original material, Alison has combined what she has learned - and FELT - through the years - so that she could give us "Mommy, What's a Depression." And she'll give us an earful when she stars at Blues Alley on Father's Day - blissfully, we'll get a taste of that earful when Alison joins us!
Veronica Nunn is no stranger to our show. It has been wonderful to learn what new projects and ventures are on her current plate - and the next show will be FULL of more good news! Her podcast, "Tales From the Jazz Side", is going strong. She has updated her Dead Horse Records label website - she has partnered with Institut Musik Daya Indonesia (where she conducted workshops and performed in May!) And she has joined the Board of Directors of a wondrous nonprofit in New Jersey called Seed Artists, Inc. All this - and a tour with Michael Franks! Thus, the reason for V's visit this time around - to call attention to those extremely popular dates with Michael around the country :)
Please join us in keeping company with two exceptional talents!
