A master of conveying world-weary bitter sweet emotions, tempered with an odd unlikely sense of optimism” (Jazz Music Archives) vocalist Mary Foster Conklin is an old school song hound with a talent for uncovering obscure standards. She hosts a weekly radio show celebrating women composers and lyricists called “A Broad Spectrum – the Ladies of Jazz” on WFDU.FM. The Rainbow Project is a new collaboration which includes John diMartino on piano and Sara Caswell on violin. Just before the pandemic the three worked together on a unique catalogue of Lieber and Stoller songs. As the world begins a new chapter where nothing is as it was, they reunite to explore what’s ahead with music by Melba Liston, Leonard Cohen, Fran Landesman, Bob Dylan and more.
