Nancy Wilson: The Great American Song Stylist

Katie Diamond’s Sunday Jazz Cabaret on February 17, 2019 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Tickets $10 (Available at the door and on line via Eventbrite)

Karen is pleased to present a tribute concert to one of her favourite jazz artists as part of Katie Diamond’s Sunday Jazz Cabaret at the Music@Mill Road series in Chelsea, Quebec.

Nancy Wilson was an American singer whose career spanned more than five decades, from the mid 50s until her retirement around 2010. She recorded more than 70 albums and won three Grammy Awards for her work. During her career Wilson was often referred to as a singer of pop, soul, R & B and jazz but she preferred to be called a “song stylist”. Nancy Wilson: The Great American Song Stylist will offer selections from many of her albums beginning with her debut recording, Like In Love from 1959 up to her 2006 CD entitled Turned To Blue. The show will feature well-known standards from The Great American Songbook such as Almost Like Being In Love, Fly Me To The Moon, Teach Me Tonight, This Time The Dream’s On Me, What A Little Moonlight Will Do to name a few as well as one her signature songs and biggest hits, Guess Who I Saw Today, a beautiful testament to love with a surprising twist.

Karen will be accompanied by two of Ottawa’s best and most sought-after musicians, Tim Bedner on guitar and Ken Seeley on bass. They are looking forward to being part of this brand new jazz series and hope you'll join them.

Karen’s musical journey began later in life when she discovered that singing along to jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald helped her deal with the heartbreak of a failing love affair. The romance, alas, ended but her love of performing has been going strong ever since. Noted jazz historian Ron Sweetman described Karen’s singing as having “real feeling and a subtle swing in a deep, rich voice.” Jacques Emond, founding artistic director of the Ottawa Jazz Festival, had the following comments: “Talented and versatile Karen Oxorn is a very interesting vocalist. She has a warm and swinging straightforward voice skilled with ballads as well as upbeat songs.” www.karenoxorn.com

A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Tim Bedner is a modern lyrical composer and improviser, and an award-winning teacher and performer on six and seven-string guitar. Reviewers have called him “a talent and a force, playing with grace, style, passion and inventiveness.”

Ken Seeley is currently active in the Ottawa-Gatineau region as a free-lance electric bass player. A professional musician for well over thirty years, Ken has developed a deep-pocketed groove in his bass playing that took shape within a formal education in jazz, funk, rock, aftro-cuban, brazilian, and other odd-meter styles.
