Event description

Description

The first in the series Katie Diamond's Sunday Jazz Cabaret at Mill Road, join Chelsea's own remarkable jazz pianist Ginny Simonds and the Ginny Simonds Quintet for the afternoon on Sunday, January 20.

Ginny Simonds
Ginny has emerged as a fine pianist/arranger around Ottawa. She has created ambitious ensemble projects and accompanies some of Ottawa's finest singers. At the core, Ginny is an elegant pianist who honours the melodies at the heart of each song and solo she performs. With gracious forays into latin rhythms, her playing is a delight and her repertoire is ever-evolving.

Peter Woods
An active gigging musician on the Ottawa music scene, Peter plays saxophone with a wide variety of musical collaborators, including a fifteen-plus year musical relationship with Canadian jazz legend Brian Browne. He has been a key member of jazz and rockensembles, including ESP, The Saints'N'Sinners, and The Trinity Ensemble. He and James McGowan (Carleton University) recently founded EvenSong, crossing genres with an open sensitivity to spiritual resonance and energy. With a love of melody and phrasing at the heart of his musical offerings, Peter’s performances inspire and delight audiences.

Howard Tweddle
Born in the UK and classically trained on piano and guitar, Howard recorded in the seventies on the EMI label as bass player with UK rock bands. After moving to Canada, he migrated to the double bass and became a prolific contributor to the local jazz scene. Howard brings a deep rhythmic groove and imaginative lines to his music that enhance any band, across genres, lucky enough to include him.

Lu Frattaroli
In the 70s Lu began to play drums, touching on classical, rudimental, and jazz styles. After early experiences in progressive rock and jazz fusion drumming, his style was strongly influenced by Jack DeJohnette. In 1983 Lu was exposed to Indian Classical tabla music that opened a new spirit and approach to his music. He has incorporated these profound experiences to bring a heightened sensitivity into all aspects of playing the drums and percussion. What emerges for his fortunate band members and listeners is an exciting, inventive, and sensitive musical experience.

Betty Ann Bryanton
Betty Ann also has her roots in classical performing, but about 10 years ago she happened upon jazz and the Ottawa jazz scene has been the happy recipient of her talent ever since. Her clear, beautiful, deeply emotive voice and meaningful interpretations of the stories told through jazz standards easily win the hearts of her audience. Betty Ann performs regularly in Ottawa in a variety of jazz combos and has been invited to both the Merrickville and Buckingham jazz festivals.
