Tierney Sutton: 6 Grammy Nominations, 6 Videos to Watch

Thursday, June 05, 2014

6-time Grammy nominated jazz vocalist, Tierney Sutton has been called "a serious jazz artist who takes the whole enterprise to another level" by Stephen Holden of The New York Times. This Sunday, you'll find out for yourself. Tierney will be on stage at BAM, performing work from her critically acclaimed catalog, including her most recent album After Blue.

We're gearing up for this weekend's show, Sunday in New York with Jonathan Schwartz, and as we do, we're digging deep into the music of each performer. We've compiled a list of our top-six Tierney Sutton performances, one for each of her Grammy nominations.  



1) Tierney Sutton's most recent project is an reinterpretation of Joni Mitchell's music called After Blue. Watch the video & get to know the album.

2) Tierney refers to this arrangement of "It Ain't Necessarily So", as an "adventure ride". You'll find no arguments here.

3) Tierney Sutton and her band performed at the Monterey Jazz Festvial in 2012...

4) Watch as Tierney's piano player, Christian Jacob, steals the show during this performance of "I Get A Kick Out of You".

5) Yes we know, you've heard "Summertime" a million times. But, have you heard Tierney's version?

6) We couldn't find a performance of this one, but it's such a great song. C'mon, just indulge us.
