DAWN LAMBETH SWINGS SWEETLY WITH CLINT BAKER’S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND: January 26, 2014

Ladies and gentlemen, a real singer.  No tricks, no emoting.  Just someone with a lovely multi-hued voice, swinging with the band, delighting in the melody and the words, never getting in the way of the song.

She’s one of our favorites, Dawn Lambeth.

Here she is with the equally rewarding New Orleans Jazz Band of Clint Baker, at an afternoon session sponsored by the Central Coast Hot Jazz Society in Pismo Beach, January 26, 2014.  That’s Clint, trombone / euphonium; Marc Caparone, cornet; Mike Baird, clarinet / alto; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano; Bill Reinhart, banjo; Katie Cavera, string bass; Jeff Hamilton, drums.

Aligning ourselves with the calendar, SUNDAY:

AS LONG AS I LIVE:

I’M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES:

EMALINE:

I CRIED FOR YOU:

I wish many singers, young and older, new and presumably wise and experienced, would savor and study the singing of Ms. Lambeth — she isn’t didactic, but by her example we could learn a great deal about subtle, convincing music.

May your happiness increase!
