Vocal Jazz and Beyond with Kerry Marsh
Ep. 02 - Thinking To the Right with guest Paris Rutherford
August 03, 2013 Kerry Marsh

Icon of the vocal jazz ensemble music world, Paris Rutherford is my first guest on the podcast, and we discuss is time at The University of North Texas, his work in the commercial music world, his views on recording vocal jazz groups, Norah Jones and her time in his program (and he sent me a recording of Norah scatting that you have to hear), we talked about his educational books on both the vocal jazz ensemble and jazz arranging, rehearsal techniques for vocal jazz directors and, of course, those lovable “Parisites”...like “Play that like you’ve been around the barn and you know what the cows look like...” and other gems. Also, the Charts of the Week are "It's You or No One" (KerryMarsh.com) and "My Romance", arranged by Greg Jasperse and available from Shawnee Press/Hal Leonard.
