This has been a phenomenal year for in-studio performances - Grizzly Bear, Cat Power, the Bobby Bares, Art Brut, M. Ward, The Coup...the list goes on.
This performance is right up there among the best of them. If there's justice in this world, Quincy Coleman just sold an assload of records after her set at the KCRW studio. She fuses country, jazz, blues, doo-wop, rock, ragtime, handclaps, and much, much more, seamlessly and proficiently. She's not your everyday average Norah Jones-wannabe, though--there are surprises and delights around every bend, especially the spicy guitar and brass solos. Improv heaven.
