Molly Johnson, the Mike Murley Septet, Kellylee Evans, Jesse Cook, and Jesse Stewart with and without the Stretch Orchestra will bring a jazzy and improvised edge to the National Arts Centre's Ontario Scene festival this spring.
The festival's lineup was announced today, and will also include many musical genres from classical to indie, as well as books, food, dance, film, and theatre. It will run for two weeks, from April 29 to May 10, at locations across Ottawa including the NAC.
At Ontario Scene's launch event, producer Heather Moore emphasized that “Ontario is where artists blur artistic boundaries”. That's also true in several jazz-related events, including a blues revue featuring many jazz vocalists and instrumentalists, and a jazz artist providing music for a dance presentation.
Ottawa's own composer, percussionist, and visual artist Jesse Stewart will be heard around the scene in a week-long residency from April 30 to May 9. He'll put percussion into a variety of artistic and multi-disciplinary performances, including the tallest trio, disabled dance, and a BOOMy bass drum shelter solo.
April 30, May 2: Jesse Stewart opens his residency as part of dance performances. He'll play live music in “The Eventual De-Expression of Rgs2,” a performance that takes its cue from American photographer Diane Arbus.
As Ottawa starts to wake up after the deep freeze, it's time to get out to more jazz and improvised music shows – and there's lots of choice in March. Many of this month's concerts will showcase our creative local musicians.
Here are a few jazz highlights in the next month from OttawaJazzScene.ca's more extensive listings, which also include many events you can attend every week.
Thursday, March 5: Mike Essoudry presents new compositions and a new sextet in concert. Essoudry is is a man of many talents – including percussionist, xylophonist, clarinetist, and educator – and one of them is as a composer of multi-layered, extended jazz compositions. He's previously written for his Balkan marching band (the Mash Potato Mashers), and for his Ottawa-Montreal octet. With this new all-Ottawa group, Essoudry says to expect excellent ensemble playing, a wide range of textures, and lots of groove.
That same evening, a new weekly jazz jam curated by guitarist Tim Bedner starts at La Roma Restaurant in Little Italy. If not precisely a replacement for Bedner's now-ended monthly jazz and blues jams at GigSpace, it's certainly not far away. Bedner will team up with a different bassist each week to provide the host band (starting with Mark Alcorn on March 5). Expect a friendly, helpful vibe and an encyclopedic knowledge of jazz standards.
And also that evening, the HML Trio (Jamie Holmes on drums, Alex Moxon on guitar, J.P. Lapensée on bass, and) celebrate their second anniversary hosting Ottawa's weekly jazz jam in the west end, at the Brookstreet Hotel's Options Jazz Lounge in Kanata.
At first listen, what sets Jill Barber apart is her distinctive voice. But it's her ability to write an immediately memorable song that has made her one of Canada's most recognizable artists
“I can't help but feel nostalgic for other eras of music. When I listen to Etta James, or Ray Charles or Carole King, I feel almost intoxicated. It stirs something in me," says Barber.
Her concert is one of the 2014-15 series NAC Presents jazz concerts. Read about all the other upcoming concerts.
The deadline to enter the contest to win these tickets is Thursday March 5, 2015 at 1 p.m.

Ottawa's Rake-star Arkestra brought the musical energy and extra-terrestrial feeling of Sun Ra to the Improvising Musicians of Ottawa-Outaouais (IMOO) concert on January 15. The seven musicians that comprised the arkestra that evening delivered a highly improvised set that had the audience smiling and frequently laughing with them at their fresh musical creations. The concert included a Sun Ra composition, Moog synthesizer, and an essential, but quieter, set of hats.
They're making a second orbit tonight at Mugshots (8:30 p.m. 75 Nicholas Street - the old jail hostel). Their full planetary system will include John Sobol (baritone sax, tenor sax), Jamie Gullikson (drum set, percussion), and Don Cumming's full size Hammond organ. Come prepared for "a spirited, raucous and occasionally beautiful time."

A three-concert series featuring South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim is the highlight of new additions to the 2015 Montreal Jazz Festival announced today.
Ibrahim's last Canadian performance was at the Guelph Jazz Festival in 2012. That festival describes his music as a “deeply soulful blend of gospel, kwela, and Ellington-inspired jazz that is elegant in its simplicity” and his compositions as “deeply lyrical”. Ibrahim was mentored by Duke Ellington in the 1960s and early 70s, and played with the Ellington Orchestra. In the 1970s, he founded the Cape Jazz sound: his music was used to support the black revolt against apartheid.
At Guelph, he played solo piano: an hour-long, uninterrupted piece, flowing between standards and his own works, but always beautiful and compelling.
At Montreal, he will play a solo show in the intimate Salle de Gésu on Thursday, July 2; and on July 3 will appear there with his Mukashi Trio (piano, cello, and flute/clarinet/saxophone), a chamber jazz group which released a well-received CD in 2014. “Mukashi” means “Once Upon A Time” in Japanese.
On July 4, Ibrahim will present his longstanding project, Ekaya, which he first launched in 1983. It's a septet, with tenor, alto, and baritone sax, trombone, and bass, drums, and piano. The Montreal jazz festival describes it as “an encounter between both instruments and cultures, between the oral musical tradition of South Africa and the vibrant legacies of Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk.”
Other 2015 Montreal jazz festival jazz concerts announced today:
Alex Moxon loves taking his favourite jazz albums apart and seeing what makes them tick – and then reinterpreting them in live shows.
This Sunday, the Ottawa guitarist and composer will pay tribute to Grant Green, a renowned jazz/bop guitarist from the 60s and 70s, with a quintet playing two of Green's albums from front to back. The show is the first in a new monthly jazz series in Lowertown.
The series, at the Das Lokal restaurant on Dalhousie Street (north of the ByWard Market), is scheduled for the last Sunday of each month, and will feature local jazz and improvising musicians playing a variety of jazz and singer-songwriter projects, each crossing genres at least a bit.
That includes the Green show, which will have touches of funk and soul. “This music is all pretty funky. No swingin'. It's sort of a 60s funk vibe.”
Green was particularly influential in soul jazz and organ trio music, Moxon said; he's “soulful, he's understated, and he's got very nice hornlike phrasing.”
Moxon first encountered Green's albums while researching material for his own group The Chocolate Hot Pockets. “Initially I heard an album he put out called Ain't It Funky Now?. It's all James Brown covers and things like that, arranged for a jazz group. I thought, 'Oh wow! That's super great!' ”
And it spoke to him. “His playing is ... he gets right to the heart of what he's talking about. There's no fluff. It's just like, this is the music. Deal with it.”
The quintet will perform the entirety of two Green albums, both live recordings on Blue Note. First up will be Alive! (1970), followed by Live at the Lighthouse (1972). “I've been waiting a long time to have an excuse to play that kind of music.”
Mary Margaret O'Hara, Peggy Lee, and Aidan Closs
Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival, Day 6
Dominion Chalmers United Church
Sunday, February 15, 2015 – 7 p.m.
I first heard vocalist Mary Margaret O'Hara and cellist Peggy Lee play together in 2012. Their Beautiful Tool project, which also incorporated several other talented Vancouver musicians, opened that year's edition of the Guelph Jazz Festival. I was immediately highly impressed with the group sound and inventiveness of Lee and the other instrumentalists, but I found O'Hara frustrating – in particular because I had consistent difficulty understanding her words, whether sung or spoken.
I decided not to review that concert because the art gallery they performed in is notorious for “eating” and distorting vocals, and I might not have been fair to the show. Given O'Hara's performance this Sunday at the Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival, perhaps I was being overly cautious.
Keep On Keepin' On 
with Clark Terry and Justin Kauflin
directed by Alan Hicks
Wakefield International Film Festival, February 21-22, 2015
Keep On Keepin' On will receive its Ottawa-Gatineau premiere at the Wakefield International Film Festival, with two showings on February 21 and 22.
Parents find this out all too quickly: it's not what you say, it's what you do when it comes to raising children. How you act is more important than what you tell them.
And that's also what makes this recent documentary about the great jazz trumpeter Clark Terry so intensely believable and so emotionally strong. In the film, you can see Terry working with his students, passing on his love and knowledge of particular songs and of jazz in general, and connecting with his longtime musical colleagues. In archival clips, you can see him in action in his heyday, playing his heart out and clearly communicating his joy in the music.
Terry is now 94. He came to fame playing in Count Basie's band, and then spent almost a decade in what he referred in as the “University of Ellingtonia” with Duke Ellington, before becoming the first African American staff musician at the NBC TV network in 1960. In 1991, he was named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master; in 2010, he received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; in 2013, he was inducted into the Jazz at Lincoln Center Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame. He has performed on more than 900 recordings, including several collaborations with Oscar Peterson.
Biographies of him say that he established a lasting reputation in his long career for “his wide range of styles (from swing to hard bop), technical proficiency, and infectious good humor” – and that's what comes through in this film, despite Terry's increasing physical frailty throughout. In 84-minutes, it tells a compelling story, both about Terry's illustrious career, but also about how he's kept on going into his 90s.
But it wouldn't be so strong if it wasn't also about one of his long-time students, jazz pianist Justin Kauflin. They first met at the William Paterson School of Music in New Jersey, where Terry taught as a visiting professor, and Kauflin has kept returning for private lessons even when Terry moved to Arkansas. The film shows Kauflin trying to establish his own career but even more importantly finding his own voice as a musician, and the intense work he puts into this despite setbacks.
The Lost Fingers
Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival, Day 4
Dominion Chalmers United Church
Friday, February 13, 2015 – 9:30 p.m.
Around the end of the 1960s, as rock became preeminent and jazz started to decline in popularity, some record executives had the bright idea of making jazz vocalists more “with it” and “hip” by having them sing modern rock hits.
In 1970, Columbia Records president Clive Davis forced vocalist Tony Bennett to make an album called The Greatest Hits of Today. The story goes that Bennett was so upset at the choice of material that he actually vomited before the first recording session for the album. Reviews were not kind, particularly for the totally unsuitable "Little Green Apples".
Some rock and pop songs – particularly those with strong melodies – can be adapted into beautiful and intriguing jazz versions, but not all of them. So when I read the Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival description of this show and realized that the Lost Fingers would be dedicating almost all the concert to gypsy jazz versions of rock, house, disco, and pop songs, a little warning light went on in my brain.
