Straight ahead / be-bop jazz. The American Songbook...the standards...and sometimes some unexpected songs in these styles.
Musician first, singer second; but actually for me it is one and the same. Playing with others takes the word "intercourse" to a whole new level when it's happening with a certain level of mutual understanding.
Ah, I'm a singer who may pick up the viola again....
Anything that reaches me....Gospel moves me the most. I was raised on classical & baroque. Breaking out of the four-cornered box was necessary to enter the jazz world.
Janelle With U on YouTube shows some very basic video of things I've done in the past 6 months. My background is violin, viola, concert band percussion, piano, sacred chorale.... More info to follow.... I'm on the way to support my friend Rick Bogart at L'ybane Restaurant on 8th Avenue!
I find that singing is the purest form of being.
