The Artistry of … Kathleen Gorman

This week’s Artistry of… Features Kathleen Gorman

Jazz takes courage. You have to be all in or there is no point even bothering with it. You can’t fake it. There’s no acting like a jazz artist. Its integrity is your honesty. Deliver the message, we’ll believe you. If you’re a vocalist your instrument is your vulnerability. It’s your instant and immediacy. Your point of exposure right there boldly in line after heart and soul. Do that and we’re listening. Kathleen Gorman’s art in jazz makes us listen. It’s because she’s not pretending. That’s her artistry.
