sunny.jpgFrom MSU Today on Impact Radio: Sunny Wilkinson has taken her place in that elite group of jazz vocalists who have stretched the boundaries and found themselves “one of a kind.”

Her performance credits are impressive, having sung with The Count Basie Band, Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass, Clark Terry, Mark Murphy, Milt Hinton, Curtis Fuller, and Edgar Winter, among others. Sunny’s latest CD release is a duo project featuring Los Angeles based pianist Tom Garvin entitled A Gentle Time – When Sunny Meets Tom.

MSU’s Jazz Studies area presents a CD release concert featuring Wilkinson and Garvin on April 11, 2008 at the MSU College of Music Auditorium.

Sunny performs regularly at jazz festivals and clubs across the country and is assistant professor of vocal jazz at MSU.

Sunny talks about the inspiration for A Gentle Time. She discusses her teaching role at MSU and says jazz is alive and well in the world today!
