Renowned Seattle vocalist Ernestine Anderson is profiled in the latest installment of KEXP’s “Sirens of Jazz,” a 10-part documentary series that features the station’s favorite female jazz voices. KEXP says Anderson was chosen for her signature bluesy style that still somehow fits into the realm of jazz, and for a “special twist of talent” that has garnered the singer, now 72, international acclaim throughout her long and storied career. KEXP interviewed Anderson in her Central District home –which she almost lost due to lack of income a few years back until Quincy Jones himself intervened. Says Anderson, “I can be down in spirit and I put on a record and I’m up again. Music changes your attitude.” To hear the entire documentary, follow the link.
