Brantford Downtown Jazz presents JIM CLAYTON QUARTET with Sonja Gustafson

Mon Apr 15 8:00 PM

"Warm and happy... tender and soulful" is how Downbeat Magazine describes Jim Clayton's music. He calls it "bebop with a touch of New Orleans," his second home. The award-winning pianist saw his latest album "Lenny Jumps In" land on the jazz radio charts in Canada and the USA. Jim's entertained audiences around the globe, from ex-pats in Asia to our troops in Bosnia. Joining Jim is London's award-winning jazz songstress Sonja Gustafson.  She brings a cool verve to classic and lesser-known standards. Sonja is dazzling whether performing passionate ballads, scatting with abandon, or crooning popular covers.

Brantford Downtown Jazz presents DENIELLE BASSELS

Mon Jun 3 8:00 PM

Indie-Swing chanteuse Denielle Bassels hails from Toronto ON. Her original music whimsically weaves a caravan of influences from her childhood and travels abroad from folk and blues, to Parisian jazz manouche and swing. In 2017 Denielle released her much anticipated album What About Wool Wishbags which has been described as “Ella Fitzgerald sipping tea on a rollercoaster with the Mad Hatter”. Denielle’s voice is as pure and rich as her performance style. She will immerse you in her tales.“There are few singers-songwriters in North America as original and refreshing as Denielle Bassels. A star on the rise!” - Jaymz Bee, Jazz FM 91.1
