Airs Monday, September 16 at 8 p.m. It's not her light and feathery voice so much as how she uses it: phrased creatively, on pitch, in ways that request and reward closer attention. It's to her credit that hip young New York musicians are happy to play with Parlato — she's as much a musician as they are. One such grouping appears here at the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I.
Gretchen Parlato, vocals
Gerald Clayton, piano/Fender Rhodes
Alan Hampton, bass
Kendrick Scott, drums
