When: Thu., Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2013
If you’re a public radio listener, Judy Carmichael needs little or no introduction. In addition to 20 years of hosting her own show, Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, she’s a frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion and has received her fair share of mentions on NPR’s Morning Edition. Count Basie — who for all his talent was never awarded with his own NPR show — also knew who Carmichael was. Out of respect for her skill, he nicknamed her “Stride,” pretty much acknowledging her as an embodiment of an entire jazz style. On this evening, she’ll perform selections from her new album Come and Get It, which boasts inspiration from musicians as diverse as Fats Waller and Peggy Lee.
