Emma Larsson, a Swedish jazz singer educated at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, drew a full house at the Salmagundi bar. She performed some old classics as well as some of the tunes from her new album ‘Let it Go’. The respected jazz magazine All About Jazz says it well, “Larsson represents a new class of vocalists who are pushing the limits of jazz vocals to the edge of post bop conventional wisdom into a realm not otherwise traveled.” The third performer in our series of Female Vocal Talent, Emma got the audience’s attention and appreciation. She was accompanied by expert guitarist Shan Kenner.
