ONLINE BROADCAST (Recorded: APR 20, 2018)
For this special night filmed in April 2018, San Francisco-based vocalist and SFJAZZ favorite Paula West — “the finest jazz-cabaret singer around” (JazzTimes) — presents a timely exploration of the political moods of America through the years, focusing on the songs of Simon and Garfunkel, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Woody Guthrie with her great quartet. When not enthralling Bay Area audiences, West has become a Manhattan fixture, regularly earning New York Nightlife Awards for “Outstanding Female Jazz Vocalist,” and in 2013, trumpet luminary Wynton Marsalis recruited her to sing the lead role in the reprise of his Pulitzer Prize-winning opus Blood On the Fields. At this time of political upheaval and division, Paula West takes a look back to these uniquely American expressions of passion and protest, showing them to be as relevant today as the day they were written.
