About the Event
Celebrating the Great American Songbook of Country Music reimagined in the style of jazz.
Los Angeles-based vocalist Staci Griesbach revisits country music icon George Jone’s six-decade recording catalog in My George Jones Songbook, presenting the legend’s classic hits nestled in a jazz context. Downbeat magazine says, “Griesbach achieves her aim of paying tribute not through imitation, but by exploring new possibilities through new artistry.” The performance salutes Griesbach’s album release this year celebrating the icon’s 90th birthday. From classic jazz swing to bossa nova to contemporary Jazz, Griesbach celebrates the intersection of these two beloved American musical art forms with “an instrument pitched somewhere between Rosemary Clooney sass and Diana Krall smokiness.” (Shepherd-Express)
