Foster Conklin, Mary
Mock Turtle, 2001, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Mary takes risks, using various jazz and blues vocal techniques on eleven popular jazz standards. The approach freshens the music. The musicians; Frank Vignola (g) Jon Burr (b), Joe Ascione (d) and Bill Mays (p) keep the spirit bouncy, bluesy and swinging, providing solid jazzy base for Mary to traverse.
