    The Artistry Of...

    The Artistry Of highlights, reflects, and celebrates. It mixes and shares language from different artistic disciplines; a musician is a poet; a singer’s voice is described as colorful, and an artist stuns and blinds your senses with the brilliance of their creative energy and expression.

    Listen for The Artistry Of - Wednesday evenings in the third hour of Dinner Jazz on JAZZ.FM91.

    The Artistry of... George Shearing

    Written by John Devenish

    This piano player, band leader and composer arranger was born blind – Stevie Wonder has said he’s never seen being blind as a disadvantage.

    The Artistry of... Brad Mehldau

    Written by John Devenish

    A true champion of the ensemble, sensitive to the players around him he plays with instead of in front and that is about sharing. He does that so well. His music is a mash up of classical training and popular music influence which could not be ignored considering his age and the world around him. Whether it’s his own or arrangements, carefully done to preserve the context of the original, he is in focus. Soulful, playful, intricate, complex and always accessible…the essence of an artist who shares effortlessly.

    The Artistry of... Marcus Roberts

    Written by John Devenish

    Marcus Roberts lost his site when he was five in 1968. He has so much appreciation, love and respect for his parents, especially his mother... also blind. He speaks of his parents intolerance of self-pity and credits them with the embracing of problems to find solutions … this attracted him to jazz. The music has always made him feel better—more confident—and it put him in touch with great musicians who also overcame a legacy of adversities: Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington & Louis Armstrong among others…

    The Artistry Of... Cecile McClorin Salvant

    Written by John Devenish

    If you can take a tune heard a thousand times and give it new life every time you play it. Give it something from you that turns it into ‘the way you do it’. Re-awakens its soul and then defines it as now all other times start from this new ‘here’ then you are all about artistry in music.

    The Artistry of... Tony Bennett

    Written by Dani Elwell

    We understand volumes about Tony Bennett through his voice and his ‘I never sing a song that is badly written’ choices, but The Artistry of Anthony Bennedetto deserves a moment as well.  From the chalk drawings on pavement at 5 years of age to the formal training he received at the Manhattan School of Art and Design to the hardcore life experience that drips from brush to canvass.  Like music, art is something that he commits to on a daily basis.
