Today's Morning Edition music features the latest record by jazz vocalist and Minneapolis native Connie Evingson. A CD release concert is set for tonight at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis.
On Evingson's latest record she teams up with the John Jorgenson Gypsy Jazz Quintet. And, on one song she is joined by a jazz vocal legend Jon Hendricks. The 93-year-old is one of the creators of "vocalese," the art of adding words to instrumental jazz pieces. He's also considered a master scat singer.
Play the audio above to hear Evingson and Hendricks sing a duet of the words he wrote for Lester Young's "Tickle Toe."
