NOTE: This performance is a screening - there will not be live performers on stage.
Jazz impresario Cory Weeds collaborates with renowned pianist/saxophonist/composer and arranger, multiple Juno Award and Order Of Canada recipient Phil Dwyer and presents a stunningly beautiful set of music that will be featured on an upcoming recording. Featuring a 12 piece string section Dwyer has orchestrated and arranged a handful of Weeds’ originals as well as some gorgeous gems from the Great American Songbook and more.
(Cory Weeds and) this crew of pro vets that know how to cook, just trust they aren’t manqueing around as they all blow from the heart and play jazz the way it was meant to be played---all in a way newbies, moldy figs and everyone in between can agree on. Solidly tasty throughout, all you can do here is still back and marvel at the crew doing their thing. Killer stuff throughout. ~ Chris Spector, Midwest Reco
