Host Derk Richardson welcomes jazz singer Laurie Antonioli to the studio. Laurie’s new album is “Varuna,” her second with the brilliant pianist Richie Beirach, recorded in Leipzig and California. Last year’s, “Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light” landed on several year-end best-of lists. Laurie will talk about her work–she also heads the Vocal Jazz Studies program at the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley–and share music from the new CD. Of Antonioli, Richie Beirach says: “Laurie is the real deal. She’s got a rich, elegant, colorful alto voice, great intonation, and amazingly creative and spontaneous phrasing. But most of all, she possesses that unteachable, unexplainable element of humanity deep down in every note she sings.” Tune in, and hear for yourself.
