JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2013 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Youn Sun Nah & Ulf Wakenius at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Youn Sun Nah & Ulf Wakenius came on like a morphine drip opening with a slow, minimal thumb piano and voice version of "My Favorite Things." Pristine and somehow detached from their material they managed to take the hurt out of "Hurt," the NIN's song that Johnny Cash killed before he died but Youn Sun Nah has an absolutely amazing voice and she delivered a completely unique take on Nat King Cole's "Calypso Blues" and brought the house down. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
