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... Molly Johnson

It is the way she sings; her respect for the spaces. You can almost forget she’s the soloist out in front of the band or group. It’s the way she shares her stage.

The Artistry Of... Kurt Elling

Kurt Elling instantly takes you somewhere smart and sophisticated. His voice is like a grand avenue. He takes you on it cruising gently through. Gently because the ride is for you. It is intimate, shared and clear – There is no mystery.

The Artistry Of... Robi Botos

Listen to Robi Botos at the piano and you are taken into two worlds. The richness of Romani culture, passion and tradition and everything that is instantly exciting and culturally rich about Canada. It is exciting because it, and Robi are what this country is all about.

The Artistry Of... Ramsey Lewis

Avuncular: relating to or of an uncle …the official definition. To me it is being fatherly in the most attentive, sensitive ways. Nurturing, respecting, guiding and teaching. Ramsey Lewis is avuncular - with his bands, the singers he has backed, the many artists he has presented over the years on his radio programs and even the way he speaks to an audience when on stage.

The Artistry Of... Eric Dolphy

I am afraid of Eric Dolphy. Maybe and mostly because he wasn’t afraid of anything. That’s what his music making sounded like to me. He made voices come out of his clarinet and flute and saxophone that sounded like things the most soulful singers wished their voices could do. He went from wild flights of cascading and flying notes to gentle flurries and then the most tender loving lines. Like all the levels of crying…all the levels of feeling. From the pain to the reeling - to the reflection and then the telling of the tale.
