The Marie Goudy 12tet featuring Jocelyn Barth Sponsored by Diva International

March 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A native of Toronto, trumpet player/vocalist Marie Goudy started her professional career at the age of sixteen. By the age of nineteen, she had already played with many notable musicians including Benny Golson, Cleo Laine and Maria Schneider. Since then she has performed with Michael Buble, Donny McCaslin, and many others.

She graduated from the University of Toronto’s Masters in Jazz Performance program in 2017. She has made her mark on the Toronto music scene playing jazz, funk, mariachi, folk and Latin music, and was a featured soloist in the 2018 SOCAN Awards. Marie has played on three JUNO-nominated albums with folk-funk singer/songwriter Alysha Brilla and toured to France, Chile, Yellowknife, and Singapore with that group.

Marie currently leads the Marie Goudy 12tet, a large jazz ensemble that is quickly rising through the Toronto jazz ranks. This group’s first album, “The Bitter Suite” featuring vocalist Jocelyn Barth and produced by John MacLeod, will be released in October of 2018.

Jocelyn Barth is one of Canada’s exciting emerging vocalists. As a jazz singer, Jocelyn is known for her emotional expressiveness and sensitivity. She delivers a lyric with intention, depth and authenticity while maintaining the playfulness of phrasing that comes from her instinctively instrumentalist-like approach to singing. While happy to keep it simple, she loves to stretch out into an explorative, improvisational adventure with her bandmates.
