Songs in blue and pink A move to Los Angeles in 1999 allowed her to re-connect with old friend and fellow Texan, jazz pianist Shelly Berg. The duo created several arrangements that would eventually end up on "Blue and Pink," a live concert." In 2001, Gray's father's illness brought her home to Texas. In February 2002, "Blue and Pink, a live concert" was recorded at Ovations in the Village, in Houston. This two-disc recording was released as two separate recordings in 2002 and 2003 "The Blue Songs" and "The Pink Songs." "That's the 'Blue & Pink' recordings that are now available," Gray said. "We've been touring those over the last year. Both albums contain cuts from the same ses- O MORE INFO Kellye Gray Aug. 27 & 28 9 p.m. & U pm. Cezanne 4100 Montrose Tickets $15 713-660-8617 sion. The 'Blue' songs are the ballads, the bossa nova's and the blues, and the 'Pink' songs are the bee-bops, the funks and the swing tunes. You can pick and choose depending on your mood, or if you're having a party, or make your own mix." All the songs are standards, she said, with more scatting on the "Pink" disc. "The mistakes and the magic moments are kept to bring the listener closer to actually being in the room, while the concerts were recorded," she said. Though most would call her a jazz singer or jazz vocalist, Gray said, "1 actually consider myself a jazz visualist." "It's sort of trans-media," she explained. "Through the use of my voice, I create pictures and images while using my voice, but wordlessly It's like landscapes... painting landscapes with my voice." Sexuality, music separate Gray has been through a lot over the last few years, including the death of her father and the end of a 15-year romantic relationship. Asked about her relationship, Gray quietly said, "I try not to promote my sexuality, and my music at the same time. I want my music to speak to for itself." She added, "Sometimes people expect a certain kind of ownership when they find out an artist is a 'family member,' you know?

Gray goes on to say how she feels about same-sex marriage. "I don't think it's going to happen for us yet. We have laid very strong groundwork through the help of [San Francisco Mayor] Gavin Newsome and Massachusetts. Taking chances, being bold, bringing it all the way forward into the public medium and making it an issue in this campaign0 We've never had that before." To those who would make marriage the top issue, she said, "However, what's going on with us as a country, the issues like get ting out of the war, the economy, healthcare. Those things must be addressed first. I do think we're going to see some states approve gay marriage, but we need to be patient." Gray confessed that since her breakup, "I feel like I am focusing on my career much more as I'm writing so much, and I am working on a new album, plus I'm teaching." Reminded that all of the pain and change she has been through must have provided certain emotions from which to draw, she replied, "It's extremely cathartic to be able to explore emotions and deal with them in my music and performances. Otherwise you just end up carrying them around." God's Wisdom in Making Friends and Choosing a Spouse Rev.
