Off to the West Coast

Just a few quick sound bites before I leave for B.C. tomorrow - I'll be on Vancouver Island and, as an aside the "left coast" has produced many fine jazz musicians : Diana Krall, Phil Dwyer, Don Thompson, Campbell Ryga, Hugh Fraser, Terry Clarke...and the up and comers like Eli Bennett, Amanda Tosoff and Paul Morrison to name but a few,,,

Tonight, short notice I realize - Brandi Disterheft and Josh Goodman at Chalkers from 7 - 10, on Thursday the John McLeod quartet at China House and the Sorry Cousins and the Roofhoppers at the Free Times on College (from 8:30) - a mix of folk and jazz and klezmer (and hopefully some bluegrass as there are banjo and mandoline involved - Tim Posgate and Adrian Gross respectively), Brian Dickinson and Ted Quinlan at Gallery 345 on Friday at 8 p.m. - they will be playing tunes from their new CD - Around the Bend. $20 or $15 students and seniors - I had the privilege of being in this space for Sheila Jordan's vocal workshop and concert - 345 Soauren Avenue.
