The Rocks Off 100: Tianna Hall, Singer of Sweet Songs
Music Scene Pet Peeve: "My biggest pet peeve would have to be the undercutting of a fellow musician on a job," says Hall. "If you want a gig that bad, go set up a job at another venue at the going rate rather than lower the pay scale/economy for the rest of us trying to make a living as musicians."
5 Desert Island Discs:
- Jane Monheit, Home
- Kurt Elling, Flirting With Twilight
- Sarah Vaughan, Sarah Vaughan Sings the Ellington Songbook vol. 1 & 2
- John Coltrane, Ballads
- The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album
Best Show Ever: "I had a show at Cezanne in February with the Mexico City Jazz Trio to showcase all the music that we had just recorded that week. I love what we created on this project and I couldn't be more proud."
First Song You Ever Fell In Love With: "The Way You Look Tonight."
