Roots & Branches 44: It’s Alright With Me

Jazz singer Germaine Bazzle is eloquent in Part Three about her collaborations with Alvin “Red” Tyler and Johnny Adams and the excitement she feels right now—excitement that moves her to dance on stage, as Maryse Déjean observes—with her quartet of Larry Sieberth, Peter Harris, Todd Duke and Simon Lott, plus music by Alvin “Red” Tyler, Johnny Adams, George French, the CAC Jazz Orchestra, the Ellis Marsalis Quartet, Lady B.J, Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis with Kenny Kirkland, and Erykah Badu.
