Singer/songwriter/cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson is a rising star on the British jazz scene.
I’ve filmed her on several occasions, but the set I include here comes from the very first time I heard her, at a gig organized by the poet Michael Horovitz.
On Portraits of a Woman she is joined by fellow jazz singer Gwyneth Herbert.
Since those early days Ayanna has become a widely acclaimed star performer, as well as a close friend. To see what she’s currently up to I suggest, at the risk of your jumping out of this site & not coming back, that you check her website: www.ayannamusic.com
