West End Jazz Series: Here's to Life: Remembering Shirley Horn

 —  —

Le Dome Banquet Hall, 1173 North Service Rd E, Oakville

After two very successful seasons, West End Jazz moved to a new venue, the "Le Dome." It has better acoustics, room for us to grow, great food but still the same high quality of music that our audience is accustomed to.

The third show of the season will be dedicated to Shirley Horn, an American jazz singer and pianist. She was most noted for her ability to accompany herself with nearly incomparable independence and ability on the piano.

The musical director and featured vocalist of this event will be June Garber. Very few contemporary jazz singers can match Shirley Horn's unmistakable voice than Ms. Garber. To make the program more complete, June will be joined - as a special guest - by Peter Campbell, who recently released a very popular album "Loving You: Celebrating Shirley Horn." You do not want to miss this one.

He has performed on television and radio jingles and at cabaret venues from NYC and New England to the Midwest and throughout Toronto. His debut Canadian recording, "Street of Tears," was released in late 2014 at Toronto's Jazz Bistro.
