Brantford Downtown Jazz Presents Alex Pangman

Mon Oct 15 8:00 PM

“Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing,” Alex Pangman is a singer whose l00ove for popular music from 1920 to 1940 charms people in a graciously old-fashioned way. Her sparkly energy seems to come from some limitless source.  But Pangman’s voice is truly her own, and she makes a specialty of breathing life into lesser-known music from the period. The style may sound familiar but “new” old songs have to be offered with first-rate diction and this, along with her special way of letting the song’s own narrative shine, makes for pretty irresistible listening
