The inimitable Ottawa-based jazz musician Kellylee Evans brings to life her 2010 album Nina, in a spectacular one-night-only event. The album, a tribute to jazz and civil rights icon Nina Simone, won the Juno for Vocal Jazz Album of the year in 2011, Evans’ first Juno award. Jazz Times wrote “… a master of fresh interpretation… so superbly rendered it could be considered definitive. “
Joining her on stage will be an all-star band that includes two members from the original recording Marvin Sewell (Cassandra Wilson, Marcus Miller, Jack DeJohnette) and Francois Moutin (Jimmy Heath, Monty Alexander, Michel Legrand).
Don’t miss this very special evening of music in which these superb artists will revisit the music from the celebrated album.
