PLAYLIST FOR “SINISTER SINGERS” (1.14.12)

15 Jan

This was supposed to be my Halloween show, until a ton of snow fell in October, and I didn’t want such good music to be left behind. It surprised me how few jazz or jazz-influenced singers are left-handed. Next time I’m going for a show of left-handed ventriloquists.
