Vocalists traditionally have a difficult time at Smooth Jazz but there are artists who defy the odds and classification. I remember seeing Nicole Henry at a showcase during my tenure as an SVP at Capitol Records at the start of her career.
I remember being knocked out by her performance. Ironically, I passed up a chance to work with her when I started my own consultancy, not because I didn’t believe in her but because I did. Nicole has won so many Jazz Vocalist awards in the U.S and around the globe." class="wysiwyg-break drupal-content" src="/sites/all/modules/contrib/wysiwyg/plugins/break/images/spacer.gif" title="<--break-->"> Now she delivers a tune just right for the season.

David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
