Lorraine Feather
Like her contemporary Kurt Elling, Lorraine Feather is that rare jazz vocalist and lyricist who reinvents herself with every project. With the February 2012 release of Tales of the Unusual (Jazzed Media) comes a new self so different that casual fans may not recognize her at first. Some might feel challenged or mystified at first by these ambitious lyrical statements, but the seductive orchestral textures are certain to lure them into the eerie world where Feather embraces life's most entertainingly bizarre and aberrant oddities—and has a lot of fun while she's at it.

This could turn out to be the busiest year of her life. Currently working with young piano phenom Stephanie Trick in a duo project aptly dubbed Nouveau Stride, the Grammy-nominated lyricist/singer and her petite musical partner are preparing to reintroduce the very roots of jazz to jaded 21st Century ears, with a hip and feminine, modernized version of that explosive energy first brought to us by thick-fingered men who brightened the dark days of the Great Depression.

Carl Hager spoke with Feather about the recording of Tales of the Unusual, and you can read all about it in Catching Up With Lorraine Feather, published today at AllAboutJazz.com. You can also read two CD reviews of Tales of the Unusual, published last week: the first, by longtime contributor Michael Bailey; the other, by Nicholas Mondello.

All About Jazz is committed to bringing you the most up-to-date and complete coverage surrounding today's jazz artists, so be sure to check out all the buzz surrounding Lorraine Feather and Tales of the Unusual, at AAJ today!
