Genre-busting Vocals and Sax with Class

August 20, 2009

Just a quick note highlighting a couple of not-to-be-missed jazz events this weekend:

Anne Schaefer

The first is Anne Schaefer’s appearance with Scott White (bass) and Kelby MacNayr (drums). Schaefer is a completely original vocalist and multi-instrumentalist well worth hearing. Her original compositions defy categorization, embracing as they do, jazz, roots and world music. She’ll be presenting material from her soon-to-be-released (we hope!) new album The Waiting Room. Her debut recording of a few years ago (12 Easy Pieces) received rave reviews across the country. Go hear Anne live and help get the new one out. Hermann’s, Saturday, October 22 at 8pm. $10 cover.

Monik Nordine

The second is the Brio Trio with special guest Monik Nordine on saxophone, James McRae (drums), Marisha Devoin (bass) and James Darling (piano). They’ll be featuring the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim as played by Joe Henderson. With Nordine on sax, this is sure to be a great show. Nordine is a formidable player now living in Nanaimo whom Victoria audiences don’t get to hear often enough. Here’s your chance. Hermann’s, 8pm, Sunday, August 23. $10 cover.
