Toronto-born Sharon Singer is a performance poet, a "wordsinger," who has thrilled audiences from Toronto to Halifax and from New York to Dallas, Texas. For the past ten years she has been collaborating with musicians who have composed original soundscapes to accompany her spoken word performances. Sharonâs poem suite, âThe Names of Water,â was set to classical music by Ottawa composer Colin Mack and sung by soprano Doreen Taylor-Claxton for the Canadian Art Song CD, "HAIL" (2006). Sharonâs original lyrics are also featured on the music CD, "SUNRISE" (2006), produced by Hamilton composer Marko Lukac. A contributor to a number of periodicals and anthologies, Sharon Singerâs published poetry books include "Fire Rider" (1996), "The Last Years of the Natural World" (2002), "Moses" (2007), and "Global Warming," the book (2008).

Sharon Singer on "GLOBAL WARMING," the CD:
âWorking with jazz legend Bob Mover is one of the most exciting performance experiences Iâve ever had. His understanding and sensitivity to my work allowed me to have the courage to explore, with much greater experimentation and range, the sounds and the rhythmsâthe musicality of my words.â

Internationally-recognized, Bob Mover started playing the saxophone at age 13. At 21, he joined Charles Mingus for a five month stay at New Yorkâs Five Spot. In 1974-75, Bob played with Chet Bakerâs group and performed regularly in New York City clubs, as well as at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and at jazz festivals in Europe. Since 1976, Bob has led his own quartets and quintets and recorded multiple albums. Some of the other greats Bob has played with include Roy Eldridge, Zoot Sims, Anita OâDay, Ira Sullivan, Lee Konitz, Paul Bley, Walter Davis Jr., Jaki Byard and Johnny Alf, the âfather of Bossa Nova.â Since 1983, Bob has lived off and on in Montreal and Toronto. Mitch Borden, proprietor of âSmallâsâ of New York City, said, âLike Charlie Parker, Bob Mover knows how to make musical escapes and come out all sexy and beautiful.â Bob Comden of L.A. Jazz Scene called Mover âa very sensitive artist and a true jazz icon.â

Bob Mover on "GLOBAL WARMING," the CD:
âMy own process was to prepare by really reading the poems, first silently, then out loud to understand the meaning, the rhythm and the overall feeling of each poemâthe music inherent in Sharonâs poetry. Then, I responded to the spontaneity of the delivery by creating a constant counterpoint with Sharonâs voice, trying for a union of feeling and variety in doing each poem. Sharon fluidly fit the text of the poems into the pockets I created in the music.â
