Joyce DiDonato’s new album, Songplay, unites world-class musicians from the varied worlds of opera, jazz, and tango in the pure pleasure of improvisation, experimentation, and exchange. The celebrated and critically acclaimed mezzo-soprano takes a creative turn on vocal music from the Baroque and Classical periods, coupled with imaginative interpretations of jazz ballads and selections from the Great American Songbook. The result is a collection of music that succeeds in being simultaneously familiar and unexpected.
