Bria Skonberg, the talented vocalist-trumpeter and recipient of the Vocal Jazz Album of the Year Award at Canada's JUNO Awards, visited Paste's studios on July 19th along with Mathis Picard, Sean Eugene Zbigniew Cronin I, and Darrian Douglas. The quintet played a few songs from her latest album With A Twist. She kicked things off with na original, "Same Kind of Crazy," her ode to the sensation of falling for someone in the city. Next Skonberg was ready to swing on her cover of the African American jazz musician Valaida Snow's "High Hat, Trumpet, And Rhythm." Then came a seductive version of Richard Alter and Jerry Ross' "Whatever Lola Wants." "Shifting back towards the more personal, Skonberg performed the intimate, original tale of unrequited love "So Is The Day," showcasing her powerful vocal range. Last but not least came her New-Orleans-influenced take on Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud."
