That's how I feel about student recitals - great concerts by up and coming musicians - for free....and last night's recital by Colin Power was no exception. I particularly liked "2,000 miles away" which he wrote at Banff - where I once spent 3 weeks on an Arts Adminstration training course while living in Edmonton.
Supporting band? Kelsey Grant on trombone and Fabio Ragnelli on drums to mention two and the amazing Michael Davidson on vibes....it's not often enough I hear that instrument - especially from a younger player - I hope to hear him again soon...
A little Facebook update - congratulations to the Youth in the City Honour A Band (whom I'm sure you'll get to hear on Sunday at the Rex) - including one Matthew Chalmers - the future Don Thompson - since he's already playing drums and now vibes....will piano be next or bass or does he already play those?
