Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaugn, Billie Holiday. And Paula West….

image

Who’s the only jazz singer alive today that ranks up there with Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday? That would be Paula West, according to Time Out New York. See her at 92nd Street Y on November 19

Known for a distinctive repertoire that includes such diverse material as Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” and standards like “Fly Me to the Moon,” West adds her own depth and drama to whichever song she chooses. “In the end,” she explains, “it’s just getting the story across. To me, the words are the most important thing.” As the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times critic Margo Jefferson writes in her liner notes to West’s 2001 album Come What May: “Ms. West never forces anything. She is rhythmically fluid and she knows just where to alter a melody, but there are none of the embellishments that show off the voice, bury the song and leave the heart untouched.”

92Y Video: From the Poetry Center Archive: Jennifer Egan and Jeffrey Eugenides

“I feel like I’ve made it to Carnegie Hall.” So said Jennifer Egan from our stage on Monday night, her first time reading at the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center. She read the first chapter of A Visit from the Goon Squad, which won this year’s Pulitzer Prize. Joining her was another Pulitzer winner, Jeffrey Eugenides, who read from The Marriage Plot. Today’s video features excerpts from both of their readings, as well as a few moments from the Q-and-A that followed.

For more coverage of the sold-out show, check out The Wall Street Journal‘s report.

Up next in the Main Reading Series is Sapphire and Sherman Alexie on November 21
