MAY 9 | TIFFANY AUSTIN: THE POWER OF THE VOICE

WATCH MAY 9 • 11 AM PT (2 PM ET)

Vocalist and composer Tiffany Austin has quickly become a force in jazz, with an ebullient style and soulful eloquence that honor the vocal greats while pushing forward in search of new territory. Her 2018 release, Unbroken (on the Con Alma Music label), celebrates the indelible link between jazz and the blues, and showcases her talents in the lineage of Bessie Smith and Betty Carter. We kick off our matinee series with the transformative power of song and honor the instrument we all share: the voice!
