We’ll sample seventeen recent jazz and blues vocal releases in a variety of styles
that you might care to buy for a friend [or yourself]

We’ll take a moment to plug the December 19 concert by the Soweto Gospel Choir
at the Dominion Chalmers United Church, and the brief run at the Bytowne of the
film “’Tis Autumn” [on legendary jazz singer Jackie Paris] from December 10 to 14.
