Today's Poet brings a touch of glamour to the Jawspring exhibition. Diane Taber is the Buffalo (NY, USA) born singer-songwriter who has notched up an eye-watering list of collaborations with many a Jazz icon. Despite being a frequent traveller on the North American live music circuit it was at home that her love of music developed. Taber's father was a singer and it was the way he delivered a lyric and the magical story it possessed that inspired her at the age of 5. Now is the time for her talent to truly blossom, she has cast off the yoke of other writer's lyrics and has become a wordsmith in her own right (More Than One Ingredient, 2013). Looking in her current playlist I see she has one eye on our London Jazz world (George Crowley and Kit Downes) but it is with pleasure that we return our gaze across the Atlantic and revel in her poetic talents.......
Or, will your smile
be like a kiss I'll want
to taste forever
