Laura Marks Debut

On Tuesday, November 12th, lovers of superb vocal jazz, as well as Latin jazz enthusiasts will be in for a treat – the launch of visual artist and elegant, swinging and sultry jazz vocalist Laura Mark’s debut CD, 57 Minutes.

The recording (which has been beautifully produced by pianist/arranger/composer Mark Kieswetter) features Laura’s unique interpretations of beloved Latin compositions (sung in Spanish and Portuguese) as well as renditions of some very tasty jazz tunes – embracing both “standards” from the Great American Song Book and rarely-performed creative gems from the world of musical theatre. Joining Laura onstage will be her first-call ensemble of Mark Kieswetter on piano, Chris Gale on tenor sax, Reg Schwager on guitar, Ross MacIntyre on bass and Ben Riley on drums.

“Jazz Bistro” is located at 251 Victoria St., in the heart of Toronto’s Theatre District. Nouvelle gourmet cuisine is served from 7:30 PM and the performance begins at 8:00 PM. There will be a $15 Music Charge or, as a special offer, for $20, you will receive admission, as well as an a copy of 57 MINUTES.

For dinner/table reservations (highly recommended), please call 416-363-5299.

We are pleased to announce that all of the players from the new CD will be joining us for the party!

Bohemian Monday Jam | June 3

Posted by on Jun 5, 2013 in Live Events | 0 comments

Bohemian Mondays June 3rdPictured here: Mark Kieswetter on the keyboard, Brendan Davis on the bass and Whitney Ross-Barris.

 

The first Bohemian Monday of June was a delight, with house band veterans Mark Kieswetter and Brendan Davis, Jackie Bouchard, Rose Stella, Whitney Ross-Barris and Peter Hill.

Rose sang “Angel Eyes” complete with the exquisite and rarely heard verse in advance of her performance Wednesday June 5 at Hugh’s Room with Micah Barnes’ Singers Playground. Peter and Brendan played Harry Warren’s “I Wish I Knew”, then Peter and Whitney played the Tom Waitts tune, “Hey Little Bird”. Mark and Brendan played two penultimate songs, “Funkalero” and Blue In Green” then Laura, Brendan and Mark rounded out the evening with “If You Could See Me Now”.

With the warmer weather, Bohemian Monday is really coming into its own. In the intimate environs of Rakia Bar we’re enjoying Monday evenings of top quality music, food, drink and bonhomie.
