JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2013 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Sienna Dahlen at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Sienna Dahlen was fantastic. Singing with a marvelous, understated (the drummer often played with his fingers) trio, she played some guitar and piano and conjured up the ghost of Tim Buckley's early jazz explorations. She has an incredible voice and the band gives her the room she deserves. Her vocals shape the strange, dreamy, minor key songs and in the Lutheran Church she stretched the forms with the perfectly suited ambiance. I couldn't tell what she was singing about but it didn't matter in the least. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
