WEMU Playlists

89.1 Jazz with Linda Yohn Linda Yohn Mar 11, 2013
9:00AM - 12:30PM
It is undeniable: siblings sound great together making music whether sisters, brothers or both. Some legendary examples are The Carter Family, The Haden Family, Phil & Buddy Guy, The Avett Brothers, The Isley Brothers, The Andrews Sisters, The Jackson 5, The Everly Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Katia & Marielle Labèque, The Allman Brothers, The Clayton Brothers and The Pointer Sisters. This morning we added another set of sisters to the sibling recording category: Sara and Rachel Caswell. Their debut CD “Alive In The Singing Air” received its WEMU premiere this morning on “89.1 Jazz”. At first one is attracted to the novelty of the group and the unique instrumentation: violin and voice, but just one listen convinces you that this is music far beyond novelty. This is serious music sung and played with deep love, respect and joy. Sara Caswell is no stranger to WEMU listeners. She has recorded two previous CDs as a leader and has recorded with Roseanna Vitro and Esperanza Spalding. It is Rachel Caswell who is a welcome new voice. Her supple voice scats in and out of the lyrical lines plied by sister Sara. Their debut CD has another reason for high recommendation: pianist Fred Hersch, one of today’s finest pianists to work with singers contributed arrangements and was their co-producer. For “Women’s History Month”, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share new music from these two up-and-coming musical voices as well as the sister team of Canadians Christine and Ingrid Jensen.
