Brian Browne and Peter Woods fill the Record Centre with standards

Brian Browne and Peter Woods discuss their encore song, at their well-received Record Centre performance ©Brett Delmage, 2016It was Take 2 for pianist Brian Browne and saxophonist Peter Woods at the Record Centre on Saturday afternoon, a reprise of their first intimate and successful show there a few months ago. They performed many of their favourite standards and the occasional hymn like "The Water is Wide". In their second set, they were also joined by vocalist Betty Ann Bryanton for evocative and extended versions of songs like "God Bless the Child". Woods and Browne have had a long-standing musical partnership, including a CD, Honest Company, released in 2013.

This afternoon at 2 p.m., guitarist Steve Bilodeau and bassist Alex Bilodeau – brothers and long-time musical companions – will perform an hour-long set at the Record Centre of mostly originals. It's free but donations are encouraged.

It's also your last chance to see publisher Brett Delmage's photo exhibit, Jazz Scene: Jazz Heard, which is currently on display at the Record Centre. Today is the exhibit's last day.
