About the Album

The Canadian composer, singer, and poet unveils a confident collection  of ‘tone poems’ – her own post-modern mix of jazz, free improvisation,  ‘contemporary’ classical, poetry, and film music elements. The singer, composer, and poet Lara Solnicki is praised for her “boldly unique style” . Solnicki’s third album, The One and the Other – out March 12 on the Outside In Music label – is an art song project that mines the tension between her music and poetry. “I call these songs ‘tone poems,’” says Solnicki, “because they are governed and held together by a ‘poetic logic,’ as well as being an off-shoot of that tradition.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
