There are plenty of local and touring artists gearing up for the Christmas jazz concert season.

Here are some other highlights: (read more…)


Get ready for some seasonal swing and funk as Vancouver-based vocalist and drummer Denzal Sinclaire brings holiday cheer to Calgary for the next concert in our Ilumin8 series.

Often compared to Nat King Cole, Sinclaire has been nominated for a Juno and has won a National Jazz Award for his recordings and has had his praises sung by the likes of Diana Krall and Cassandra Wilson.

Hammond B3 Organist Chris Gestrin is responsible for making this group as funky as it is with his wicked organ grooves and creative arrangements of the Christmas classics.  Saxophonist Cory Weeds is perhaps best known for his work with the great Dr. Lonnie Smith and brings an unbridled enthusiasm to playing the saxophone. Guitarist Bill Coon is as funky as they come but brings with him a wonderful jazz sensibility that really completes the quartet.

Don’t miss this special seasonal offering from JazzYYC on December 18 at the Ironwood Stage and Grill.
