Meet two of the most vibrant jazz talents on the scene today! Kristen Lee Sergeant’s current release, “Smolder,” is a story of fire — love ignited, ablaze and extinguished. DownBeat critic Bobby Reed writes “This elegant album illustrates what can happen when admirable ambition is paired with vocal vibrancy.” Her collaborator on this wonderful new album is jazz saxophonist and composer Ted Nash, Grammy-winner and a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra directed by Wynton Marsalis. Ted is also one of the founders of the Jazz Composers Collective. They make beautiful music together and their love of wine has led to them producing their own wine called “Two Notes,” a Bordeaux blend from California, soon to be in its second vintage.
