This week on The Jazz Session:

TJS #352: Amy Cervini. Vocalist Amy Cervini’s new CD is Digging Me, 
Digging You (Anzic, 2012), a tribute to Blossom Dearie. In this 
interview, Cervini talks about her early exposure to Dearie and why she 
fell in love with her music; how she chose the songs for this album from 
Dearie’s large repertoire; why she favors working bands; and the 
itinerary of her upcoming tour. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/yOGSzh

TJS #353: Ed Reed. Vocalist Ed Reed’s new CD is Born To Be Blue (2011). 
Reed, now 83, has lived the kind of life about which movies are made. 
This interview charts the story of his life: his childhood in the Watts 
neighborhood of Los Angeles, where a young Charles Mingus was a frequent 
neighborhood visitor and the big bands were a constant source of 
entertainment; his time in the military, where he was introduced to 
drugs; his years in San Quentin and Folsom prisons, where he played in 
the prison bands with the likes of Art Pepper; his eventual 
rehabilitation after many attempts; and his turn to performing and 
recording in his 70s. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/xu9roT
