Glenn Buhr and the Button Factory Band featuring Jerzy Kaplanek and Margaret Sweatman
Jan 26 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Glen Buhr

Glenn Buhr (Genie award-winner and 4-time Juno nominee) is a singer/songwriter and guitarist/pianist; a powerful performer of his own music.  Music lovers will remember him as front man – with conductor Bramwell Tovey – of Winnipeg’s New Music Festival.   He’s well traveled as a composer, having written music on commission for orchestras, ballet companies, choirs, classical soloists, and string quartets from all over the world.

He has toured Canada twice as a jazz artist, and he’s also performed his own piano concerto with the Esprit Orchestra and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.  His full-length ballet, Beauty and the Beast, has toured The UK five times, and Asia three times.

Buhr’s songs and performances are an eclectic and imaginative mix of vintage blues/roots music, lyrical songs, and sound art.  The Button Factory Band – the current incarnation of his active imagination – is a 4-piece roots/art-rock band, made up of some of the finest creative musicians in southwestern Ontario.  The band is the vehicle for Buhr’s recent music: a collection of original songs full of vivid imagery and inventive sound painting.

All of the band members are composers, excellent singers and virtuoso instrumentalists who are dedicated to innovative music.  The band’s live concerts are exciting, highly energized, and often wildly unpredictable, mixing Buhr’s precisely arranged songs with pure improvisation.

Jan 27 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

http://www.uoftjazz.ca/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/jim-vivian1.jpg

Jim Vivian has been at the forefront of music making in Canada for over 25 years, with more than 25 recordings nominated for a Juno. Collaborators include national artists Mike Murley, Don Thompson and Steve Amirault, international artists including Kenny Wheeler, Norma Winstone and Dave Leibman.

An engaging, lyrical saxophonist, Mike Murley is one of Canada’s most celebrated and well-respected jazz artists.  Currently active as a leader in various formations from duo to septet, Murley also maintains a busy schedule as both a sideman and an educator as Chair of the University of Toronto Jazz Program.  He has played on twelve Juno Award-winning recordings since 1990, most recently in 2013  for his trio recording Test of Time (Cornerstone Records) and in 2017 for Metalwood’s Twenty (Cellar Live).

An experienced teacher, Jim is presently on faculty at the University of Toronto, York University, and the Humber College Community School.

The Dave Wiffen Electric Band
Feb 2 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

 

Dave Wiffen

David Wiffen is one of our favourite jazz players in the local music scene–though his musical reach extends far beyond Waterloo Region.  In addition to being on faculty at WLU’s music school, he has toured with the Tommy Dorsey Big Band, and the Peter Appleyard Orchestra, also sharing the stage with Aretha Franklin and Nathalie Cole at various times. David can play any style – jazz, rock, blues, and classical music and his muscular, soulful sound makes him the “go to” tenor man in the region.

They’ll be playing a mix of originals and tunes by well known fusion and jazz/rock artists.

ROSS WOOLDRIDGE IS THE BEST JAZZ CLARINETIST THAT CANADA HAS EVER PRODUCED…AMEN!” – Bernie Turcotte, Executive Director of the IAJE Canada (International Association of Jazz Educators)
Hamilton native ROSS WOOLDRIDGE (pianist, clarinetist, saxophonist, flutist, arranger, producer, composer, writer, copyist, teacher) currently leads the Tribute to Benny Goodman Sextet, the Ross Wooldridge Trio, and the Ross Wooldridge Quartet; co-leads (together with Eddie Graf) the 14-piece Swing Era big band – The Galaxy All-Star Orchestra and, together with trombonist Dan Douglas co-leads The Dixie Demons six-piece traditional jazz band.  Ross was a member of the late Jeff Healey”s Jazz Wizards and he performs regularly with Terra Hazelton. You may have heard Ross at the 2015 Waterloo Jazz Festival where he lead Alex Pangman’s band in a terrific set of swing music.

Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant young vocalist is proud to be known as Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Juno nominee Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and the historical knowledge of an avid record collector to breathe new life into the sturdy standards of the classic jazz era.

A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, the gifted Toronto scenemaker has built a loyal fanbase amongst jazz listeners and dancers alike through her critically acclaimed work with her stacked Alleycats in the studio, nightclubs and concert halls across Canada including three stellar showcases at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Tatania Eva Marie and the Avalon Jazz Band (NYC) Gipsy Jazz at it finest!!
Feb 9 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

 

“one of the best young singers around”  – Wall Street Journal

Tatiana Eva-Marie is a singer and actress living in New York City. She is the lead singer of the Gypsy-French Avalon Jazz Band and was recently included, alongside Cyrille Aimée and Cecile McLorin Salvant, in a list of 37 rising jazz stars by the magazine Vanity Fair.

She performs regularly in New York and on tour around the world. Past shows include “Divas of the Silver Screen” at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Midsummer Night Swing Festival at Lincoln Center, The NYC Winter Jazzfest, the New York Hot Jazz Festival, “The Edith Piaf Centennial” at the Iridium (as performer and musical director), concerts at the Carlyle, Joe’s Pub, The Rainbow Room Opening Night, concerts for the French Embassy on Bastille Day, the New York City Opera gala at the Plaza, opening night of George Clooney’s “Monuments Men” and the Los Angeles premiere of “Mad Men”.

The musical style presented by Avalon Jazz Band is inspired by the sort of jazz played in Paris in the 1930s and 40s, especially by the Hot Club de France, founded by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, whose repertoire consisted of original music and jazz standards. This French style of hot jazz then became what we now know as “Gypsy jazz” or “Jazz Manouche”, with its technical bravadoes and virtuoso skills, embodied by the quick fingers of violinist Adrien Chevalier. The delicate voice and swing phrasing of Tatiana Eva-Marie bring the zazou element to the mix: an ingenuous and mischievous joie-de-vivre, which she incarnates to perfection.

The influence of the Russian aristocracy’s diaspora to France after the Russian Revolution and of the Jews fleeing Eastern Europe before WWII, can be felt in the French compositions of that time. This element is also present in the music of Avalon Jazz Band, with a sound palette of Gypsy, Klezmer and Balkan inspiration.

Heillig Maneuver
Feb 17 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

“Heillig Manoeuver brought down the house… We were treated to a dynamic performance with beautiful arrangements performed by extremely talented musicians.” -Peter Shea & Juliet Dunn Twilight Jazz Festival- St. Catherines, ON

In 1979, Bassist Henry Heillig and  Matt Zimbel formed the legendary nine piece latinfunksalzajazz band Manteca and went on to record 10 albums, win Juno awards, and tour the world’s major festivals from Stockholm to the Hollywood Bowl.  Since that time, he has been busy as musical director for the the Genie and Gemini Awards, touring with Carlos del Junco’s Blues Mongrels and generally freelancing on the Toronto scene.

Henry describes the Heillig Manoeuvre  as “A vehicle for sharing music that is both challenging and satisfying without intimidating the audience…contemporary jazz from a songbook, not a doctoral thesis”  This is contemporary jazz that honours tradition  and manages to straddle a fine line: harmonically and rhythmically rich enough to intrigue the more serious jazz listener, it also maintains a level of melodic accessibility and groove to appeal to a more casual listener….smooth jazz with bite.
The rhythm section features drummer Charlie Cooley who was Heillig’s  rhythm-mate in Manteca for over 20 years. He’s toured with the Guess Who, Prairie Oyster, and Kellylee Evans and he and Heillig have been described as the rhythm section that “plays as one”.  Allison Young (Tara Hazelton Swing Band, Big Rude Jake) on saxophone  and Pianist Stacie McGregor (Archie Alleyne ) round out the band.

Feb 24 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

 

http://julietdunn.ca/images/JD_IMAGES/juliet_dunn_3.jpg

Originally hailing from the UK and half Jamaican, Juliet has lived in Vancouver BC, Niagara-on-the-Lake and St. Catharines, Ontario as well as Paris, France where she lived for 13 years.

Unlike most, Juliet submerged herself in the world of music and theatre at a later age (in her 20’s), which took place for the most part in France and continues to this day as she develops more and more as an artist here in Canada.

Whilst in France Juliet worked in theatre, musical theatre, film and television, the fashion industry and the music industry.

Some highlights from her career in France include playing the lead role in the TV movie ‘L’Amerloque’ (The Yankee) , of a ‘jeune-fille au-pair / jazz singer’ and releasing two singles as a recording artist. (Released in France, Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg.)

In 2001 Juliet returned to Vancouver where she continued to progress as an actress and singer. In the musical theatre world she received the ‘Aida Broadbent Award’ for her performance in the T.U.T.S. (Theatre Under the Stars) production of ‘Little Shop of Horrors’.

One year later, the prestigious Shaw Festival hired Juliet and she then relocated to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. At Shaw, Juliet performed in numerous productions for their 2002 and 2003 seasons and in 2002 she received the ‘Tony Van Bridge Award’ for most promising newcomer.

Bernie Senensky
Mar 3 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

http://www.jazzmusicarchives.com/images/artists/bernie-senensky-20120902063737.jpg

 

Bernie began playing piano at the age of eight, settling into his interest in jazz when he was 14, studying with Winnipeg jazz eminence Bob Erlendson. He began sitting in with local Winnipeg groups which included guitarist Lenny Breau and bassist Dave Young, eventually taking his considerable talent to Edmonton. His work leading a house band with the Holiday Inn Hotel chain eventually took him to Toronto where he took up residence in 1968, quickly establishing himself as an accompanist playing for and with a wide variety of visiting musicians including Pepper Adams, Chet Baker, Ed Bickert, Terence Blanchard, Ruby Braff, Randy Brecker, Al Cohn, George Coleman, Buddy DeFranco, Herb Ellis, Art Farmer, Sonny Greenwich, Slide Hampton, Herbie Mann, Frank Morgan, Joe Pass, Art Pepper, Bucky Pizzarelli, Dizzy Reese, Red Rodney, Jack Sheldon, Zoot Sims, Sonny Stitt, Lew Tabackin, Clark Terry, Kenny Wheeler, Joe Williams, and Phil Woods.

He has recorded with many important jazz artists, played in piano duets with Oscar Peterson and Marian McPartland, and performed with major name bands and ensembles including Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers, Rob McConnell’s Boss Brass, the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra, the Elvin Jones Quartet, and the Herbie Mann/Al Grey All-Star Septet.

He formed his own trio in the early ‘70s, and began occupying the piano chair in The Moe Koffman Quintet in 1979 when the band was the number one small jazz combo in Canada. He had played with Moe on occasion prior to that and “was always impressed with his utter musicality and his complete mastery of the flute, alto, and soprano saxophones”. As part of The Moe Koffman Quintet, Senensky ultimately had the opportunity to contribute many of his own compositions to the band’s repertoire for more than twenty years, and continues to keep the memory and the music of Moe Koffman alive today as leader of his Tribute to Moe Koffman Band.

Derek Hines Big Band
Mar 9 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm
Hines_ Derek 1.JPG

Derek, who lives in downtown Kitchener, said he wakes up singing. Sings while cooking breakfast, while working on anything. Hines interprets his world through music and he pays tribute to those who have passed with song, people such as his mother who died of cancer but had always wanted her son to record the church music she loved.

In November 2017, Hines released his first album “The Long Journey Home” a collection of gospel music arranged Big Band style. This music is Frank Sinatra meets Mahalia Jackson.

His love of music was born in an unexpected place.

“When I was really young my mom and dad would take me to the barn,” recalled the adopted son of chicken farmers living near Wellesley. What do you do with a three or four year old while you’re trying to feed hens and muck stalls?

“They’d bring a black and white TV and I’d watch Sesame Street and music,” he said.

Hines was also influenced by his mother, who was highly musical.

She loved the old religious tunes and there was a lot of Irish music in the household, a salute to her mother’s heritage. His dad preferred the country stylings of Boxcar Willie.

It was an interesting musical background and one that Hines would continue as he experimented with everything from Christian music to musical theatre to rock until he finally found his jazz groove.
