What can happen when admirable ambition is paired with vocal vibrancy. —DownBeat
Song Sessions: From Alone to Together is being premiered in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center on the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra's Facebook Page on September 2nd at 7pm EST.

Jazz vocalist and songwriter Kristen Lee Sergeant has chosen to do something unique in the time of COVID, apart from the cascade of streaming shows: she's making mini concerts that feel more like “The Judy Garland Show" than something found on TikTok. Utilizing a remote band (layered tracks from her musicians) she and Grammy Award Winning multi-instrumentalist and composer Ted Nash have made a 18 minute concert that speaks to both isolation and togetherness, utilizing unique arrangements of standards and an original song that captures both classic style and a new sass.

The concert, shot in black and white, was made in Kristen and Ted's temporary home in Atlanta, Georgia, to which they decamped in the beginning of the pandemic. Using their imaginations, basic recording equipment and some video technique, they've made something lasting in a very unexpected manner.

Song Sessions uses the intimacy of the camera to create an experience of the songs that is dynamic and personal, and Sergeant weaves the tale of the tunes together with well thought remarks throughout. It features the musical talents of Jeb Patton on piano, Hannah Marks on bass, Jay Sawyer on drums and Ted Nash playing both alto flute and tenor saxophone.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
