JAZZ ALBUM OF THE YEAR: CARMEN LUNDY - CHANGES
Carmen Lundy is one of the leading female jazz vocalists and on her 12th album 'Changes' she sounds better than ever, accompanied by a six piece jazz combo.
We are so sorry to report that the Blue Note in NYC has cancelled our dates, July 11-14, 2013. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will miss seeing our friends and fans this July. Be assured, we'll be rescheduling NY dates very soon, and as soon as we know the new dates, we will let you know! Stay tuned.
Christopher Loudon, longtime journalist with JazzTimes, had a chance to chat with Carmen about her recent album "CHANGES" along with many other significant musical adventures, including the long journey to her current lofty status. As Loudon states in this interview he titles Overdue Ovation, "Carmen Lundy is Freedom In Music Personified". Enjoy this informative, insightful and very personal chat with Carmen Lundy. http://carmenlundy.com/jazz-times-sept-2012
