    Montreal Launch Alex Pangman's "New" Album

    Friday, November 07 2014, 8:30pm - 11:59pm
    Toronto’s Alex Pangman is set to release “new”, her 3rd album with Justin Time Records on November 7th, at at Montreal’s Upstairs Jazz The record launch party will feature Pangman and her Alleycats, Brigham Philips (trumpet), Peter Hill (piano), Chris Banks (bass), Glenn Anderson (d). The album was recorded in New Orleans. New being the theme, it represents both a new chance at life — Pangman had second lung transplant just seven months before recording this album — but also a shock of new things. New co-producer Andrew Gilchrist recorded Pangman in New Orleans using new musicians from the city where jazz was born. “I wanted to test myself as an artist by taking this record someplace different, physically and sonically. This new session has a slightly different soundscape, and I think it’s groovy and very swinging.” Known for a dozen or so years as Canada’s sweetheart of swing, Pangman made sure to include Canadian compositions in this collection of tin pan alley gems. her original song It’s Never Enough slide in seamlessly beside Canadian classics, I’ll Never Smile Again, and, The World is Waiting For the sunrise. Her favourite song on the record is Fit As A Fiddle, “Because I am again,” she says. True to form, not even a year after her most recent transplant, she was on the road again touring the jazz festival circuit to prove it.
