    First Listen: Brandi Disterheft - Blue Canvas

    Written by Brad Barker

    First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor Radio - The Right Sound For the Right Price.

    Brandi Disterheft will be releasing her new album Blue Canvas on May 27, featuring Harold Mabern and Joe Farnsworth.

    The bassist and composer, who was born in North Vancouver and studied at Humber College, says when she was a child she would hang out under her mom’s piano, who was transcribing Bill Evan’s tunes and think about the limitlessness of jazz and how it has brought her to her current residence in Harlem blocks away from where Duke Ellington lived.

    In some ways Blue Canvas is a return to swing for Brandi after her previous, the more exploratory Gratitude recording.  Tunes from Clifford Brown and Tadd Dameron are mixed in with strong originals featuring the voice as well as the bass playing of Disterheft.

    Here is your First Listen for May 20, "Crippling Thrill" from Brandi Disterheft.
