Essences: Aretha, Sheila Jordan, and Miles

A Facebook thread started by singer Laurie Antonioli with comments by singer Stephanie Bruce inspired me to write some verbal "thumbnails" of some of my favorite artists. We were discussing marketing of artists and I commented that the key is communicating the unique essence of each. So I thought I'd make a stab. 

Here are three of them. What do you think?

Aretha Franklin:
Melding the black church with the bedroom, buoyant girlish flexibility with downhome female power.

Sheila Jordan:
Appalachia meets bebop. Whatever your journey or mine, you can always enter the sunshine of my smile.

Miles Davis:
Ever-evolving cool.
