CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- There's only one way to present some of Lorraine Feather's tongue-twisting, fast-action jazz and that is stone cold sober.
Let's put it this way: Before I perform, I never drink. Not that I drink all that much anyway, but I wouldn't have even a half a glass of wine because there are a lot of words to get through," said Feather in a phone interview from her home on the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington state.
Even then, Feather good-naturedly admits she sometimes will flub up and forget words when making her way through a fun ditty, such as Hit the Ground Runnin'" that includes a super-fast delivery of just about every sports cliche she could pack into one song.
If I do forget and get tied up, Shelley and I will just stop and start over again," she said, referring to pianist Shelley Berg, who joins her at Wellington's at Scarlet Oaks Friday night for the opening concert in the Charleston Jazz Series season.
