Nancy Walker Quintet

November 3, 2013 @ 5:30 am – 9:30 am
The Jazz Room @ The Huether Hotel

6:30 pm  Ian Wright Trio (drums, piano, bass)

8:30 pm  Nancy Walker is a jazz pianist extraordinaire, with a strong Canadian presence and extensive following of fans and true admirers. Nancy is one of the most expressive instrumentalists and a mainstay of the Canadian Jazz festival scene. She is also a highly sought after side musician – by instrumentalists and vocalists alike.

“Nancy Walker extends an invitation to the listener to enter her very unique world of pianistic journeys. Hers is a joyous leaping loping stomping approach to the keyboard that harkens to the era of a strong left hand. There are many influences swirling in her music; there is also this strong sense of self, a definite presence of Nancy Walker as a musical entity.”Len Bukowski, CODA Magazine
