Juno Jazz nominees
Included on the list are Emilie Claire Barlow and the wonderful Kellylee Evans for her Nina Simone tribute - soooo looking forward to her S of T concert, and the dear departed Jeff Healey.
In the instrumental realm - Adrean Farrugia, Kelly Jefferson and woo hoo! John McLeod's Rex Hotel Orchestra's debut - "Our First Set" and in a surprise - Owen Howard's - "Drum Lore" - Owen is a former Edmontonian, now Brooklyn resident
who I had the privilege of hearing when he was a teenager!
Congratulations to all!
Snow is wreaking a bit of havoc with events here - the Humber Latin Jazz night is rescheduled to February 11th - that's a Friday, no GNO - yes no GNO at Chalkers. I'm still toying with going out to hear Madeline Forster at the Rex - 9:30 show.
Upcoming - the 5th annual Brenda Carol Renaissance Jazz Fair - this Saturday at Remarks Bar and Grill - 1026 Coxwell Avenue - featuring the talents of Brenda herself as vocalist, Rob Christian, Larra Skye, Pat Murray and a cast of dozens. It's family friendly of course - doors at 7:30 and action starts around 8 p.m.
$20.00 in advance.
