"The Newest Sound" A Tribute to Jeanne Lee featuring Lina Nyberg
Time 5:30 pm
Singer/poet/improviser/composer Jeanne Lee (Archie Shepp, Cecil Taylor) passed away in 2000. Her The Newest Sound Around album was released in 1962, and despite including Monk and Gershwin tunes, swing took a backseat to intellectual cool and abstruse melodies. This tribute features leading lights in the Swedish creative music scene, Lina Nyberg voice, Josef Kallerdahl bass, David Stackenäs guitar, Fredrik Ljungkvist sax, and Vancouver’s Lisa Cay Miller piano.
Thanks to the Swedish Arts Grant Committee.
