"The Best for Last"

Andrea,  Diva of the Day
For my last show of year as your Diva of the Day I thought I would bring you some of my favorite women that I have played this year,  some new voices & sounds I think you will enjoy and a great interview with an amazing rising vocal star.

Today in the parlor, on this brisk winter's day, we celebrated "The Best for Last" cause this is what I feel like I have saved for us all.  Joining me in the parlor was the soulful, the sensational, the allegory speaking Jimetta Rose Smith.  She spoke of her philosophies on music, on the artistry of it all, and the fusion of Ella, Billie and Sarah.  

Check out what Jimetta had to say and what music was played in the parlor today by cutting and pasting here: scroll down to Mid Day Jazz for Dec. 8, 2011, 1pm and click play.
Super Duper Shout Outs to fellow radio producer DJ Ausar for sharing wonderful women with me that appeared on this week's show, much appreciated!
