The Jazz Shed sat down with Cory Weeds, Jazz Impresario extraordinaire, at the newly launched Frankie’s Jazz Club in downtown Vancouver, to stretch out and talk all things Jazz. Enjoy this part 1 clip of our discussion where Cory talks about how and why he decided to make a career around playing, presenting and recording Jazz music. Stay tuned for more of our extensive conversation coming very soon.Tweet
Bruno Schubert is a unique and (to me) shockingly delightful surprise on the Vancouver Jazz scene. In fact, I wouldn’t restrict this assessment to just the local Vancouver Jazz microcosm. I have been studying, playing and listening to jazz constantly for 35 years and Bruno is the real thing. Rather than try to explain why I think he is important, I would just invite you to listen to his playing, and indeed his arranging and the way he compels his group (listen to his maraca and tamborin work) through his unique and entrancing treatment of Love For Sale with a deceptive Night In Tunisia intro.
Full Album release is coming soon.
Mike Allen performed with his quartet at CBC Studio 700 on November 7th as part of the Legacy Jazz Society Series. In this particular instantiation of the quartet Mike was joined by Steve Holy on Bass, Sharon Minemoto on Keyboard and Dave Robbins on Drums.
This is a sneak peek of a longer recording by The Jazz Shed of this performance. More will follow soon.
Special thanks to Dexter Gregoire for the beautiful filmography.
