Check out this cool Jazz Shed “streeter” with Cory Weeds down at the Coastal Jazz and Blues office on a sunny summer day in Vancouver. The Juno Award winning Jazz Fusion power quartet Metalwood has just released its first new album in a long time. The Jazz Shed was honored to receive an early promo copy of Twenty and we love it! Twenty is available on Cellar Live and Metalwood performs live at Frankie’s Jazz Club on September 9th, 10th, and 11th.
I caught up with four time Grammy winner and jazz bass legend Stanley Clarke just before his top-billed performance at the Vancouver International Jazz festival this past June.
Stanley was very generous and gracious as he shared his thoughts on touring in Europe, playing with Chick Corea, the state of the music and recording industry, the language of jazz and more.
Please enjoy and feel free to share your comments.
