Excellence In Jazz Playlist, October 4, 2016

  

It wasn’t too many years ago that an attractive young trumpeter from Canada was wooing audiences at Sacramento’s Jazz Jubilee. Now all grown up, Bria Skonberg has just released her first album for a major record label. The eponymously titled “Bria” features many vocal standards in a sophisticated pop style plus five original songs penned by this emerging composer.

 Bria’s voice has an innocent and alluring quality about it. As a trumpeter, she adheres to the traditional standards and classic jazz she learned as a youngster. Bria, by the way, continues to foster young talent as an educator. She has performed at over one hundred jazz festivals worldwide and she is the co-founder of the New York Hot Jazz Camp and Festival. The Wall Street Journal said she is “poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.”
