Maureen Kennedy Quartet at Jazz Bistro

Saturday, May 31 2014, 9:00pm - 11:59pm
Known to the Canadian jazz community as a “singer’s singer”, vocalist Maureen Kennedy has cultivated an extensive repertoire of memorable standards and rediscovered gems that compliment her very personal sound. Kennedy developed her love for jazz in her early twenties when she studied for six years with Canadian flugelhorn and trumpet player Fred Stone. The purity of her sound and restrained use of vibrato developed under his tutelage. Through the years Ms. Kennedy has performed at numerous venues and arts events in and around the city of Toronto with many of Canada’s accomplished jazz players. This past summer she went to Vancouver for the first time and sang two nights at the Cellar Jazz Club with a group that included Vancouver saxophonist Cory Weeds and guitarist Bill Coon, who will be joining her at Jazz Bistro to open and close this three-night stand. Ted Ono, the producer of Out of the Shadows says, “Discerning listeners should find Maureen Kennedy’s warm, round and resonant sound both delightful and refreshing. She sings with understatement while still retaining her jazz identity… What she and her four accomplished accompanists successfully achieve here is the art of good mainstream jazz, the kind listeners find both comforting and enticing.” Maureen Kennedy – vocals Bill Coon – guitar (May 29, 31) Reg Schwager – guitar (May 30) Cory Weeds – tenor saxophone Steve Wallace – bass MUSIC STARTS AT 9pm MUSIC CHARGE $15.00 (Thursday/Friday); $20.00 (Saturday)
