Episode Summary

EDIT
Two-time Grammy Award winning jazz vocalist Diane Schurr has taken a major leap in her career and released “The Gathering,” a country/western record where she pays tribute to this musical genre. She gives music fans a new twist to some of the legendary classics. The Vanguard Records release was produced by noted country producer Steve Buckingham and enlisted some of the who’s who of both country and jazz music. Including Grammy Award Winning artists Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Kirk Whalum, Larry Carlton, and Mark Knopfler. Schurr covers many legendary singer/songwriters ranging from Patsy Cline’s “Why Can’t He Be You?” to Merle Haggard’s “Today I Started Loving You Again.” “The Gathering” was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, hailed as ‘Country Music U.S.A,’ and was recorded in one day. “Deedles” as she’s affectionately known all over the world, has recorded and performed all styles of musical genres from pop, soul, jazz, and gospel. So “The Gathering” wasn’t a far stretch musically and is a fresh and innovative take on the music Diane loves so dearly. Throughout her career she has always been on the cutting edge of mixing standards and contemporary in jazz music. Discovered by the late Stan Getz during the early 1980’s, Her first major break came when she performed at the White House for former first lady Nancy Reagan while performing with the late Stan Getz. Deedles performed “Amazing Grace” and after her performance the first lady gave her a gigantic hung. In 1983, GRP Records signed the young vocalist and her career skyrocketed. For over 25 years she continues to be a dominant force in jazz music. Deedles is currently about to tour to promote “The Gathering.” To find out her upcoming dates or to order her latest disc, visit her on the web atmoreless
