COMING IN OCTOBER: Jeri Southern’s subtle sensibilities and lovely, honest singing voice brought her a bit of jazz/pop fame in the 1950s. After about a decade of album releases, nightclub performances, and television appearances, she decided to get out of pop to teach singing and to study Bach and Brahms at the piano, promising herself never to wear another evening gown again.
Discover a fantastic singer and her unique take on her art and the world. David Garland’s interview with Jeri Southern was her last interview before she died in 1991.
