Brandee Younger - Wax and Wane

Full review to follow. Superb programming by the Music Gallery crew to launch their season by introducing local crowds to NYC's Brandee Younger. Working in the tradition of Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby, Younger is meshing the technical demands of playing the harp with the power of creative expression — but to see her in person was to see that her warm presence, glowing almost as much as the golden light off her harp, was just as integral to her presentation. Sharing laughter and stories made this less of a recital than a joyful celebration.
