The Artistry of ... Tierney Sutton

Blue in GreenThis weeks Artistry of ... Tierney Sutton

The vocalist is a staggering  8-time Grammy nominee - a “Best Jazz Vocal Album” Grammy nod for every released project in the last decade. Her artistry is so giving that she has been described as a jazz story-teller. Her voice is warm, subtly textured, and inviting. "The Tierney Sutton Band” has a very cool reality that seems even closer than many families. They are very much a family. The line-up backing her features Christian Jacob, Trey Henry, Kevin Axt, and Ray Brinker. This unique dynamic saw them in 2011 receiving a Grammy nomination for their collaborative arranging. As a group they are the only band ever to receive this. As an educator and mentor Sutton is guiding a whole new generation of singers – listen for her influence, and generosity in singers like Gretchen Parlato and Sara Gazarek.
