Newport Jazz Festival: Gretchen Parlato Live

Gretchen Parlato

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.

Personnel
Gretchen Parlato, vocals
Gerald Clayton, piano/Fender Rhodes

Newport Jazz Festival: Kurt Elling Live

Airs Tuesday, May 21 at 9 p.m.  A classic male singer, Kurt Elling has an old-school vibe to everything from his mannered stage banter to his declamatory, full-chested delivery. But he isn't afraid to write brainy, twisty lyrics over an obscure jazz number, or take a pop song back to the drawing board. He can do a lot with his voice, you see, and the band featuring long-time collaborator Laurence Hobgood, a pianist, helps to set the stage. Also joining him on stage are guitarist John McLean, bassist Clark Sommers and drummer Kendrick Scott.
