Sax in the City
Yes, okay this is a lame attempt to jump into the hullabaloo - isn't that a fun word - surrounding the release of "Sex and the City 2", which yes, I will eventually go and see because I am a girl, love fashion and loved the show.
The Sax refers to a number or great saxophonists performing in our fair and very hot (literally) city this week.
For example, tonight Vern Dorge is at the Rex for the 6:30 show followed by Quinsin Natchoff back in town - for the 9:30 show with what looks like a great band. Quinsin is also part of the Dave McMurdo orchestra/big band tomorrow night at the Old Mill. Then tomorrow night at the Rex for the late show it's Vancouver's fabulous Phil Dwyer! It's always a treat when he comes to town and he apparently was part of the music for the Art of Time Ensemble show down at Harbourfront last night and again tonight.
Ali Berkok's group Arkana Music has a CD release at Tranzac tomorrow night with some great opening acts - Canaille which features "Jazzology" guest Dan Gaucher and "Hobson's Choice" - with Michael Davidson on vibes. Doors open at 7:30 and shows start at 8 p.m.
Foodies - Jae Steele is having a cookbook release at the Foodshare HQ on Croatia Street tonight with munchies at 7 p.m.
What's with the dolphins - I adore them and it's a lovely cooling image. Plus this is Compassion Week so visit http://www.compassionweek.ca/ to find out more. You can use your favourite animal as your Facebook profile photo.
