June Tyson

June Tyson has been played on NTS shows including Sees to Exist Show, with I Roam The Cosmos first played on 17 September 2015.

June Tyson (February 5, 1936, Albemarle, North Carolina – November 24, 1992, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) was a jazz singer.

She performed with keyboardist and bandleader Sun Ra regularly, from at least the early 1970s to her death. Tyson was diagnosed with cancer and grew increasingly ill. When she was unable to sing because of her illness, she played the violin instead.

Tyson's voice was somewhat reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan's, though she was not as technically skilled as Vaughan, coming more from the blues…
