ARETHA FRANKLIN: The Most Celebrated Voice of the 20th Century and the Enduring Sound of Soul
‘JAZZ LECTURE SERIES’ presentation with Ashley Kahn and Marilyn Keller

presented by PDX Jazz 

Lewis & Clark College – Evans Auditorium

9:00 AM – 11.30 AM FREE

Two ways of looking at the celebrated Queen of Soul: through the church-born style of music Aretha passed away on August 16, 2018, the world mourned on a level reserved for kings and queens. In the rush to celebrate her legacy, it was easy to lose sight of the details that marked her ascent in and overlook the musical styles and social conditions that set the stage for her arrival in 1967. As well, very few considered the elements of her vocal style, and what details set her so far apart from other soul and black gospel singers. With audio and video demonstrations, this lecture will look at the legacy of the Queen of Soul—and dive into the details of her singing approach as well.
