    Bernie Senensky and the MOE KOFFMAN TRIBUTE BAND

    Image

    This Wednesday, May 18th, Bernie Senensky and the Moe Koffman Tribute Band will perform at The Old Mill Inn in front of a sold-out room of JAZZ.FM91 donors. This concert was an incentive offered during our 2011 Spring On-air Fundraising Campaign. Please look for more concert events brought to you by JAZZ.FM91. It’s your donation that make events like this happen!

    Gifted composer, arranger, and conductor in his own right, the brilliant Bernie Senensky began occupying the piano chair in The Moe Koffman Quintet in 1979 when the band was the number one small jazz combo in Canada. He had played with Moe on occasion prior to that and “was always impressed with his utter musicality and his complete mastery of the flute, alto and soprano saxophones”.

    Cornell Dupree dies at 68; versatile guitarist

    Image

    Cornell Dupree, whose nearly five-decade career as a guitarist included recordings and performances with the likes of Miles Davis, Mariah Carey and Aretha Franklin, dies at his home in Texas.

    Often called "Mr. 2,500" as a reference to the number of recordings he participated in, occasionally as a leader but mostly as a first-call sideman, Dupree adapted easily to the changing demands of soul, R&B, pop, jazz and beyond during his nearly five-decade career.

    Al Jarreau lives (still) to sing

    Image

    If last summer's intensive-care stint didn't make Toronto fans wonder whether they'd ever see Al Jarreau perform here again, the singer's recently rumoured death — with a headlining gig at Jazz Lives pending this week — certainly gave them pause.

    The “Wikipedia prank” triggered an April 27 posting on the 71-year-old California-based artist's website that “rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.” It was a mirthful Jarreau with whom the Star spoke days later, on the eve of his first Toronto show in 15 years.

    “I'm doing pretty darn good ... geezering right along, my darling,” he joked.

    The only vocalist to win Grammys in three different categories — pop, R&B, jazz — Jarreau still tours regularly and is working on an album of new music. In between, he had time for a few of our questions.
