Special Guest: Virginia Schenck.
From both straight-ahead jazz and free improvisation to the centuries-old tradition of circle singing, Virginia Schenck has proven herself to be a singer of enormous range. But it’s jazz that makes her soul soar. Give her a Leonard Cohen tune or Bonnie Raitt ballad, and she’ll mix up the rhythms or add a vocal twist, and the song becomes her own.
A nationally recognized music therapist and educator, Virginia has returned to her jazz roots with a CD that showcases her crystal clear voice and easy swing style. Titled “VA,” it features an original composition plus a collection of jazz standards. And just as she likes to do from the stage, Virginia pays homage to women composers, including groundbreaking vocalist and civil rights leader Abbey Lincoln.
It's good to talk.
