Sharron McLeod and the Griots

Talking with Sharron McLeod is like communing with a musical repository. We’ve known each other from the music scene in Toronto, Canada, since the early 1980’s. She is now based in Nice, France. Her references shift with ease from Sun Ra, Butch Morris, Cecil Tayler, Joni Mitchell, opera and the Gustav Holst Military Suites. We discuss her musical influences and her choices of repertoire as a jazz singer.
