Bands come in all shapes, sizes and dynamics. Some thrive on the tensions, while others fall apart too soon due to creative differences or inflated egos. None of these challenges seem to present themselves to the group of musicians that takes its name from the vocalist Tierney Sutton. With nine albums under its collective belt, complemented by three Grammy
nominations, the Tierney Sutton Band is about to tour again in support of its American Road
release (BMF Jazz, 2011).Todd Gordon
spoke with Sutton about the many reasons why she's maintained the same band for nearly two decades and how it's manged to work on a collective level so successfully. She also talks about her Baha'i faith, and how it has become intrinsically linked with the group, and an important watershed moment, courtesy of bass icon Ray Brown
