Tony Westlake CD Launch featuring Misha Piatigorsky and Sketchy Black Dog

For those of you eager to get your hands on the CD that Tony Westlake recorded in July and celebrate his life and legacy, make sure you reserve the November 10/11 weekend for a very special concert.

Tony’s wife Elisabeth has sent out the following press release:

Launch of “Listen to Your Heart” CD
Hermann’s Jazz Club
November 10 and 11, 2012

“I am so happy to let you know that Misha Piatigorsky, Chris Wabich and Neil Swainson of Sketchy Black Dog are coming from NY, LA and TO to play Tony’s tunes from his “Listen to Your Heart” album.

The recording session in July was a deeply moving and beautiful experience. I know these three fabulous musicians will recreate that magic for all of us in November. It promises to be a wonderful celebration of Tony’s musical life and legacy. I hope you can be there.

So free up that weekend to be at Hermann’s Saturday and/or Sunday evenings! A huge thank you to Misha who organized the dates at Hermann’s. A trio of cheers for Sketchy Black Dog!

I will let you know as soon as tickets are available. (Gotta make them first!)”

Please note, too, that Arnold Van Klaveren will feature the CD on CFUV’s Rhythm-a-Ning on October 8th from 6 – 8 pm. Tune in at 101.9 or stream it live from the CFUV website.

Ian McDougall 12-tet Concerts on Vancouver Island

The U-JAM jazz society has found a way to bring one of the hottest west coast groups to Vancouver Island – not an easy feat since many of these players live in Vancouver. Here’s what Dave Paulson, who did the lion’s share of the organizing, has to say about the shows in Victoria and Parksville:

“We are very excited to present what I feel is the best in west coast jazz.  Ian has assembled an all star cast including old friends Oliver Gannon and Ron Johnson along with Phil Dwyer, Ross Taggart, Campbell Ryga, and many others.  This is a gathering not to be missed, performing charts specially arranged for the group by Ian and other band members.

Tickets will be available soon for concerts at Alix Goolden Hall on Friday, Nov. 30th, and at Knox United Church in Parksville on Dec. 1st.”
Check the U-JAM website closer to the date for more info.

    Hi Rick,
    You mentioned that I would be playing from Tony’s new disc on Oct 6th. That would be a Saturday. My show would be on the 8th. Monday. I’m hoping to have a copy of the recording by then.
