About the Artist

Carolyn Graye (Seattle) received a 2003 GAP to hire an on-site engineer to set up and record a live performance of poems by Denise Levertov with the goal of producing a CD. A collection of poems by Ms. Levertov will be set to music that Graye has composed for a small jazz ensemble. The project was started in 1997, shortly before Ms. Levertov’s participation. Graye is currently a columnist for All About Jazz (formerly Jazz Steps) and offers private instruction in jazz voice, piano and theory.
