Jazz Diva – LOOK OUT!
Gwen Hughes- Jazz? Pop? Post-modern melodic posturing? Bluegrass? Funkified low-carb song styling? Well, you won’t find her in the sale bin with Perry Como, that’s for sure. A multiple-time winner of Creative Loafing’s BEST JAZZ ARTIST Gwen has proven a popular ambassador of the genre. Along the way, she has crooned in Paris and Prague, collaborated on a film about Elvis impersonators, and appeared as a character in a detective novel (Philip DePoy’s, Dancing Made Easy, Dell). She’s joined at the Inman Park Festival by A.J. Ghent (Allman Brothers, Col. Bruce Hampton) and her regular line-up of Retro Jazz Cats. Gwen is also currently appearing as Monique McCandless in Ghost Brothers of Darkland County at Atlanta’s Alliance Theater!
