A profile of the vocalist Lisa Sokolov, highlighting two live performances, both in 1981, from WKCR's Soundscape archive. We put Sokolov into context with her collaborators, notably William Parker, and contemporaries. The second half of the program draws attention to another prominent female vocalist, Lauren Newton.
