Ottawa Blues This Week - 23 September 2013

Friday night at the OBS Road To Memphis local Blues Challenge finals, volunteer judges Mike Graham (Ottawa Blues Society), Lynn Saxberg (Ottawa Citizen) and Peggy Voigt (Loyal Blues Fellowship, Belleville ON) chose Wicked Grin to represent the Ottawa Blues Society in the Blues Foundation’s 30th International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, January 21-25, 2014. 

Four bands competed in the finals –Three Times Lucky, the Dan Deslauriers Trio, Wicked Grin and the Joe Gaspar Band. Entries were judged in five categories – blues content, vocal talent, instrumental talent, originality and stage presence – using the scoring criteria provided by the Blues Foundation.

Cover charges and raffle fundraising provide support for travel and accommodation expenses for the winning OBS representatives.  Over $4,000 has been raised to date and a final fundraising event is being planned for later this fall.

Formed in late 2003 around the fierce vocals and stellar guitar work of Murray Kinsley, driven by the rhythm section to die for of Leigh-Anne Stanton and Liam Melville, and with the addition of veteran blues man Marc Seguin on harp, Wicked Grin combines blues, groove, rock and a little funk to give you ‘Blues With Bite’.

The Ottawa Blues Society is a volunteer organization whose mandate is to “foster appreciation, promotion, preservation and enjoyment of the blues in all of its forms”.
The 18th Edition of Virée Blues Boréale presents
J.D. Slim
Cafe Bar Bistro Le Troquet, 41 Laval Street (Old Hull sector), Gatineau
Wednesday, September 25 @ 8 pm; tickets $15

A  renowned multi-instrumentalist and arranger for many recordings, he has also performed with many of the greats, the likes of Nanette Workman, Bob Harrisson, Jim Zeller and played on the most important stages like that of the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Tremblant Blues Festival and Virée Blues Boréale. Our guest has been part of most of the Blues history around here. This time, he is visiting to present us with his own works in a show derived from his last double CD which he released in 2012, a thorough reference on the thirty year career of this true old hand of the Blues.

Jean-Denis Belanger AKA J.D. Slim was born in Mont-Louis in the Gaspe region. Author, composer, singer and guitarist, since over three decades, he goes wherever the music brings him. The following short summary of his career is proof of his worth. In the ‘80s, he recorded three opuses: “Rock’n Roll Graduate”, “Caribou et Blue Rock” and “Special” from which comes the single ‘Honey Bee’. This Rock firebrand sounds kind of like Memphis mythical Studio Sun, so valued by 45 RPM collectors. By then, J.D. Slim is already in full ascent: regularly on T.V., invited to the Montreal International Jazz Festival, and present everywhere on the Blues scene, very much so at the Blues Sessions on St-Denis Street, in Montreal. He even performs on the same shows as John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Jeff Healy, etc.

The ‘90s bring us “Unplugged”, a nod to the world successes of Eric Clapton; then, in 1994, he is selected as the guitarist of Nanette Workman which lasts a few years on her Rock and Romance tour. At the turn of the millennium, he brings out a major opus, “Slide Guitar Man”, the CD where he is at his best and which was played on every Canadian radio station on Blues music broadcasts. Since 2000, J.D. Slim is active with various projects: a tribute to Bob Dylan: “Knockin’ on Dylan’s Door”, a whole host of collaborations and the production of an educational DVD on the structures of the Blues: “Guitare Blues et Rock, accompagnement et improvisation”. At the same time, he puts on an adaptable show: solo, duo, with a trio or a quartet.

In 2012 we get the eagerly-awaited double album titled “J.D. Belanger A.K.A. J.D. Slim”. This major project is kind of a musical legacy on CD … a 31 original tune double album, in English on the first CD and in French on the second. It also includes four instrumental works. It is a twenty artist or so project; he invited musicians with whom he worked all along his career. But J.D. Slim’s signature is easily recognizable among all the guests on the two albums; he is on Dobro guitar, on electric guitar, on ukelele, on bass, on keyboards, on harmonica and vocals.

One of the most versatile guitarists on the Blues scene, be it acoustic Blues, electric Blues, country Blues, Cajun, as well as Folk and Rock, this artist, so well known for his unique slide guitar playing always comes out with unforgettable one-of-a-kind performances, meaningful to every listener. With J-F Paradis on drums, Carl Rufh on bass and with his guest, Henri Breton on guitar.

The Last Waltz
Monday, September 23 @ 9:15 pm

“Seeing The Last Waltz again after many years is like revisiting an old passion and realizing the heat is still there. Filming in 35 mm, with seven cameras, Martin Scorsese shot the final concert of The Band on Thanksgiving Day of 1976. Later, he staged a few extra numbers on a soundstage, interviewed The Band offstage, and then took nearly two years to edit it all. The result, digitally remixed for its rerelease, is surely the greatest concert film ever made.” (Peter Rainer, New York Magazine)

ByTowne Cinema and CKCU are screening concert and documentary films every Monday (repeated Tuesdays on some weeks) for as long as interest continues.
Music By The Bay Live presents
Up Close & Personal Blues Revue
221 Church Street South, Ajax ON
Friday, September 27; tickets $50 including hors d’oeuvres & appetizers

Music by the Bay Live Small Club BIG SHOW Concert Series presents an intimate, up close and personal Blues Revue featuring Juno & Maple Blues Award Winners.
All tickets includes Hors d’oeuvres & Assorted Appetizers ● Reserved Seating ● Large Dance Floor ● Barrier-Free Accessibility ● Free Parking

For the 5th Season launch, an Intimate & Interactive Blues Revue with performances by Al Lerman (solo), Jake Chisholm (trio) and the Gary Kendall Band.

Al Lerman (Solo)
Multi-instrumentalist Al Lerman (harmonica, tenor saxophone, guitar and vocals) is the band leader of the 2x Juno Award winning blues/roots outfit FATHEAD. He also performs regularly as a solo acoustic artist playing guitar & rack harmonica, and often works as a guest sideman with a myriad of top-notch bands, touring internationally.

Jake Chisholm (Trio)
There is sincerity in Jake Chisholm’s music that is immediately identifiable. Whether his compelling vocal, his memorable guitar hooks, or his thoughtful lyrics ; he excels in all areas, providing the listener with the feelings of both familiarity and being privy to something cutting edge ; both at once. No fancy bells and whistles here, just a deep and full sound that is a fresh take on blues and adding rock ‘n’ roll elements. Inspired by classic blues, soul and rock n roll, Chisholm’s tasteful yet intricate guitar work and song writing evokes vivid and shameless tales of love, lust, and lessons learned.

Gary Kendall Band
Everyone knows Gary Kendall as oft-elected Maple Blues’ Bassist of the Year, blues man about town and keeper of the bottom end for Downchild. But Gary’s alter ego is found in his much beloved Gary Kendall Band – a band in which each carefully selected player is equal and accountable. Formed in 2005, Gary reached out to some of Toronto’s best musicians to create a turn-on-a-dime squad of blues marauders to build a loyal following for their own brand of music –and for doing exactly what they like to on any given night – play the blues. The chemistry found between Gary Kendall (bass/lead vocals/songwriter), Tyler Burgess (drums), Darran Poole (guitar/vocals) and Wayne “Shakey” Dagenais (piano/organ/percussion/vocals) is beyond formidable. This spirited foursome plays together relentlessly and has so much fun at it, one’s never entirely sure what to expect – and that live spontaneity is exactly what the blues has needed for a long time.

The 9th year for what has become one of the most popular Blues Series in Canada, the first BOTR show takes place October 25, then one show a month (December excluded) right through to May. As in the past all BOTR Shows are fundraisers for different Westport charities. To date over $45,000 has been raised and the goal this year is to hit another $5,000.

For the third season in a row, despite higher costs and inflation, the price for these nights is staying the same - $60 (plus HST) which includes a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet served up by The Cove, the Show, dancing and a donation to charity. Being able to hold the price is due in part to the support of our new Sponsor – Dan Aykroyd Wines
