Jazz Vocal Icon Abbey Lincoln 1930-2010

Abbey Lincoln, one of jazz  vocal music’s most distinctive singers and songwriters passed away in New York on August 14th.   Lincoln, whose career spanned more than fifty years, evolved from a rather traditional circa 1950’s super club ingenue into a true original in terms of both her singing and songwriting.

On August 28th “The Vocal Sound of Jazz” will devote the entire program to the music of Abbey Lincoln. We will showcase her career from the early recordings through her extensive Verve Records catalogue which captures her at her most adventurous and memorable moments.
