Virtual Series: Alison Crockett
Join us for a conversation with vocalist Alison Crockett about her latest projects in American and Brazilian jazz.
On seminal recordings by King Britt, Blue Six, Us3, and a host of others, Alison Crockett’s voice has provided a velvety, sensual finishing touch for cutting edge beats. Her voice dripping soul with generous helpings of jazz, gospel and blues, she has taken the baton from divas of the present and past such as Rachelle Farrelle, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Donna Summer, Elis Regina, and Sarah Vaughn and forged a uniquely personal and singular musical vision. Alison’s latest project, released in November 2018, focuses on a new love: Brazilian music. After visiting the country she decided to mix her musical loves to create the project, “Obrigada.” Recorded in the city of São Paulo in the summer of 2017 with Brazilian jazz musicians Felipe Silviera, Thiago Alves, and Palinho Vicente, Alison has weaved a refreshing sound love of jazz, bossa nova, and soul that continues to highlight her fearlessness as a musical traveler boldly projecting her inimitable voice into the sonic future.
This conversation will be moderated by Pablo Regis.
