November 27, 2009

Vocalists Maria Manna, Miranda Sage, Maureen Washington, and Melinda Whitaker appear in Victoria tonight (Friday, Nov. 27, 8pm) in a “Great Ladies of Jazz” concert at Alix Goolden Hall.

There’s lots going on at Hermann’s in Victoria this week. The Noah Becker Quartet appears on Saturday (8pm,$10) and vocalist Carol Sokoloff and Trio Expresso perform the songs of Johnny Mercer on Sunday (8pm, $10). Tuesday night it’s the Lambrick Park Jazz Band (7pm) and on Thursday you can hear the Esquimalt High Jazz Band (5pm). The Tom Vickery Trio does its weekly gig Thursday, Dec. 3 (8pm, $6).

    Hi Rick,
    I hope all is well.
    Here is a link to a jazz/punk video that I shot in Toronto in the 1980’s, that is currently on youtube…

    It is based on a composition of mine called…
    “Jazz Isn’t Dead…It’s just Bad For Bizness”
    It follows the trials and tribulations of a jazz band from the Toronto Queen St. Scene of the 80’s…The Kings Of Sming.
    The video is a short 7 min. approx and features all original compositions.
    James Young Bass
    Paul Cram Sax
    Friedholm Schonfeld Sax
    John Lennard Drums
    This is really a teaser as we are re-releasing the digitally remastered video “officially” in the spring.
    Thought you might be interested…enjoy!
    James Young
