Enjoyable music (we won't attempt to qualify what's 'good' is!)  knows no boundaries. And being skilled and versatile, area jazz musicians and improvisers can also be heard playing a variety of this other music: funk, blues, classical, chamber music, folk, pop, R&B and more. And during the past few years, area jazz fans have heard some interesting jazz that had one foot solidly planted in another genre.

OttawaJazzScene.ca is pleased to list some of these other musical events ("extra-jazz affairs")  by area jazz musicians. The event must be of interest to OttawaJazzScene.ca readers, and performers must be active in the Ottawa-Gatineau jazz scene, in the editors' sole judgement.

Phil Motion & The Easy Lo-Fi at the Babylon Nightclub

Saturday, November 23, 2013 - 9 p.m.
Cover: $10
19+

A fundraiser for the the 2013/2014 Carleton University Ski and Snowboard Club, with help from the U of O Ski and Snowboard Club.

  • Phil Motion - drums, vocals
  • Greg Stone - guitar
  • Marc Decho - bass
    and special guests

Phil Motion & The Easy LO-Fi is an original back-to-basics return to classic funk, blues, northern soul, and Motown. Dirty drums, warm, punchy bass, gritty guitar tones and hard-driven vocals make up the recipe for nothing short of old-school love. Lo-fi do-it-yourself recordings and an imagination gives this project two strong legs to stand on. Produced and recorded by Phil Motion on Garageband with two sm57s makes for a feel and sound that rooted in a no 'glit' all grit pocket. A bit of help from Jay Jaknunas at Metropolitan Studios with the tighten up, some of the most solid players pushin' and pullin', and the band is good to go.

Phil Motion est un groupe qui fait un retour aux bases du funk classique, blues et motown, avec rien d'autre que du groove pur!

Also on the bill: 

DJ ACRO with Brendan Colameco on drums
