The Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra - Kristin Berardi meets The Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra
There is a well worn saying in the music business that goes...
"if you marry a singer, make sure they can sing, because sooner or later they'll end up singing with the band."
Not surprisingly with many of these adage's they are frequently come true. Fortunately for this bandleader, Kristin Berardi is universally acknowledged as a vocalist of rare talent and technique that continues to astonish, and endear herself to, audiences around the world.
This rewarding project has been three in the making and has been a production of epic proportions, unique in the Australian jazz scene, particulary in recent times. Seven young composers were asked to interpret and arrange Kristin's original compositions for jazz orchestra with arrangements coming from far afield as Cologne, Sydney, New York, Hobart, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Picton.
Naturally this project required serious financial support and was made possible in the initial stages by the generosity of Laurence and Cathy Freedman. Part of Kristin's winning Freedman Fellowship proposal in 2007 was to have a set of her originals arranged for voice and jazz orchestra which has since evolved into this CD recording.
