Ruthie Foster's songs contain elements of blues, gospel, country and folk that give color
and texture to her vocal work and fill those who hear her music with great joy. Her
strong, vibrant voice and her easy, friendly manner instantly charm audiences of all ages.
Raised in Gause, Texas, a small town 180 miles southeast of Dallas, Ruthie grew up
surrounded by the rich, soulful sounds of gospel and blues. Her outstanding voice and
superb original music have many influences including Sam Cooke, Mahalia Jackson, Sister
Rosetta Thorpe, Sarah Vaughn, Etta James, and Lightnin' Hopkins, although perhaps none
have had the influence of her mother, Shirley Jones, who urged her to "Open your mouth
and sing, girl!"

Lehto and Wright have a sound which is a unique blend of traditional and
modern styles. By taking cues from the Irish, English and American folk
traditions and blending them with a healthy dose of original compositions,
Lehto and Wright have taken a fresh approach to the world of folk, and with
the addition of Matt Jacobs on drums and percussion, folk rock.

Blake confesses that he grew up on sci-fi/horror/fantasy flicks and superhero comics -
which explains his penchant for capes, masks, and double identities. "Batman, Spider-Man,
the X-Men - I love those characters. The songs I play deal with similar themes - alienation
being one of them. I identify with the mutants in X-Men. Iíve always identified with
outcasts. To be called a weirdo or a freak is a compliment to me!"
Blake even owes his musical influences to comic books. "I was introduced to Bob Dylan
by Alan Moore, who quoted some Dylan lyrics in Watchmen. The words really grabbed me.
That started me on the meandering path that Iím still on. I began writing provocative
songs in the singer/songwriter tradition and when I got into bands like Portishead and
artists like Beck and Moby, I found my sound."
John Wright has been involved primarily as a bass player with many different musical
projects of all varieties from Latin jazz to Celtic Rock; from Blues to Progressive Rock

instruments, multi-tracking bass, acoustic and electric guitars, and mandolins on
most of the tracks, with Matt Jacobs (drums) and Stuart Martz (violin) joining in.
A few tracks, like the seven minute instrumental track "Forward Motion," feature electric
guitarist Steve Lehto.

Jazza Diction is dedicated to the proposition that music can be entertaining,
thought-provoking, literate, challenging and fun. These vetaran musicians, poets and
composers craft song and spoken word odysseys driven by a melting pot of jazz, blues,
rock, funk, folk, reggae and ethnic, giving loving nods to the spirits of Ginsberg,
Kerouac, Waits, Marley, Hendrix and Miles Davis. Their music defies genrefication . . .
which is why they invented the word "Jazza." Jazza is music, Daddy-O! The basic elements
are similar to jazz in that there is a fundamental rythym structure that never changes
and there is always at least one musical part that is consistent.

songs to cut... My picture, taken by artist extrodinaire, Chris
