This charming and unexpected trio features Sutton’s lush vocals backed by celebrated flutist Laws, and Koonse on guitar.
Sutton normally travels with her own stellar band, but this collaboration is one of the most touted trios in jazz today. The combined talent of Sutton, Laws and Koonse represents one of the most creative forces in jazz, as they explore the interplay between of jazz and chamber music. The inherent intimacy of their blend should make for an unforgettable evening of sonic exploration.
