If the best artists are those who are persistent in their desire to develop themselves, their approach and their work, then jazz vocalist Sara Gazarek is definitely up there with the best.

For musicians, each new project serves as a postcard from where they are at that point in their musical road trip. If that’s the case, then Gazarek is at a particularly interesting leg of her artistic journey.

The multiple Grammy nominee is getting ready to release Vanity, a four-song EP that finds Gazarek further developing a sound and artistic vision for which she’s become highly respected and highly in demand.

Gazarek joined me to talk about her latest project.
