Jazz Descendants CD Release at Jazz Bistro

Tuesday, May 06 2014, 8:00pm - 11:00pm
The Jazz Descendants: RED CD Release Party Juno-winner, bassist and composer, Brandi Disterheft has joined forces with long-time collaborator, pianist and composer, Joshua Goodman to create an album which draws from a mix of traditional jazz sources. Oscar Peterson commented about Brandi as, “She is what we call serious” and Joshua, who has been mentored by the piano great, Barry Harris, has a fresh set of standard-like compositions that swing beautifully. “Tranquility”, the first part of a ballad-medley by Joshua, is a homage to Barry and Thelonious Monk. While Brandi’s “Prayer to Release the Troops” is a powerful, stirring composition evocative of McCoy Tyner, Charles Mingus and Ron Carter (who she currently studies with). On the album RED, legendary drummer, Leroy Williams, who has toured and recorded with Grammy-winning pianist Barry Harris for decades, completes the trio and contributes a playful Latin Jazz composition, “Rosita”. For the CD Release Party, however, Toronto-based drummer, Morgan Childs, two-time winner of Grand Prix du Jazz of the Montreal Jazz Festival, completes the trio. Joshua Goodman – piano Brandi Disterheft – bass Morgan Childs – drums Music Charge $15/$12(advanced)/$10(students)
