"The best thing you can do is to be a woman and stand before the world and speak your heart." (Abbey Lincoln) Abbey Lincoln (1930-2010) stands as a major jazz singer and prolific songwriter who blazed a new trail in American vocal music–her voice, distinct and recognizable, her delivery straightforward and moving. The Jazz Performance Arts Collective (JPAC) revisits this unique artist’s original compositions in The Magic of Abbey Lincoln, which, as they describe it, “reveals her work as a collage of colors of the human condition, with all its heartache and hard truths, hope and joy.” JPAC performers include Diane Richardson and Marietta Benevento, vocals; Steve Duke, saxophones; Tony Cesarano, guitar; Micky Patten, bass; Jefferson Voorhees, drums; Romy Keegan and Karen Price, dance.
