Emilie-Claire Barlow and Dave Young bring sensuous jazz back to the Fall Festival for our 40th Anniversary “Best Of” year.
You could say that her newest album, The Beat Goes On, finds Emilie-Claire Barlow going back to the future. You see, the Toronto jazz chanteuse’s acclaimed previous two albums, 2007’s The Very Thought of You and 2009’s Haven’t We Met? (both nominated for Juno Awards) drew upon the Great American Songbook and tunes from the ‘30s and ‘40s. Here, she looks forward to the ‘60s for her repertoire, and the result is a charming album that does real musical justice to that most colorful of decades.
Toronto-based and Winnipeg-born multiple award-winning bassist and composer Dave Young, is, without a doubt, one of Canada’s most valuable and beloved musical exports. Whether he’s performing as part of a classical symphony, or as an integral member of an iconic jazz trio (with the likes of the late Oscar Peterson), or leading any of his dynamic ensembles, Dave remains a total musician, with artistic soul in abundance.
Young was here last in 2007 for the Fall Festival, and returns to serve up more of his virtuosic jazz interpretations and originals.
Dave Young was recently named as a member to The Order of Canada – our country’s highest and most prestigious civilian honour
