This week, I’m thrilled to bring you my interview with vocalist and composer Jocelyn Medina. I first met her a year or so ago, when I took her (beginners) class at the New York Jazz Workshop. In addition to jazz, Jocelyn has also embraced other musical traditions, including Ghanaian drumming and Hindustani voice. In our interview, Jocelyn talks about her musical journey from classical to jazz, and how her travels and immersion in other cultures have infused her style. She’s already cut two CD’s of original compositions, and will start working on her third in July. This weekend, along with some of the other musicians who will appear on her next CD, Jocelyn will be performing at Club Bonafide and then on Saturday, May 28th, and at the Bar Next Door on Monday, May 30th. If you can’t make either of those dates, she hosts a jazz performance followed by an open mic every Sunday night at Rue B – your chance to hear some great talent and have fun!
