Stars Shine For AES – Special Appearance by Judy Collins

Discussion Will Focus On New “Bohemian” CD

NEW YORK: AES Convention Chair Jim Anderson has announced another major coup in attracting iconic artists to participate in the upcoming 131st Convention. On Friday, Oct. 21, from 10:30AM to11:30AM, internationally celebrated writer/performer Judy Collins will participate in a rare one-on-one interview with music journalist Jason King. The discussion will focus on “Bohemian,” Collins’ upcoming CD release.

It was once said that “If amethysts could sing, they would sound like Judy Collins.” Indeed, Collins has been a folk and pop music icon and a powerful influence on several generations of musicians and listeners. Her ethereal performances and top-selling recordings of songs like “Both Sides Now” and “Send in the Clowns” ultimately helped make songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Stephen Sondheim become household names.

Now in the fifth decade of her career, Collins is about to release “Bohemian,” her new album on the heels of her critically acclaimed 2009 release “Paradise.” Judy will chat with Jason King, music journalist, Artistic Director and Associate Professor of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, about her life, career, and the making of the new album. The discussion will be highlighted by cuts from the forthcoming CD.

In making the announcement, Jim Anderson remarked, “The AES has always drawn major artists including Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Jackson Browne and Mick Fleetwood. But they are generally focused on visiting the Exhibits or working with specific manufacturers. This year’s show has attracted a trio of superstar participants, Tony Bennett, Ben Folds and now Judy Collins. We are extremely fortunate to provide their insights to our attendees.”
