Description et paroles
A New York Times writer describes Bria Skonberg as “the shining hope of hot jazz.” A critic for All About Jazz says the trumpeter and vocalist “exhibits stylistic shades of Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington and Diana Krall.” John Mark Rafacz speaks with Skonberg about her upbringing in small-town British Columbia and her path to the mecca of jazz—New York City. Skonberg, who performs at Penn State’s Schwab Auditorium November 30, 2016, also talks about “Bria,” her major-label album debut. Excerpts of “Curious Game” and “Egyptian Fantasy” from “Bria” enhance the webcast. Music, used with permission, copyright 2016 Sony Music Entertainment.
