Jazz, gospel and blues and a whole lot of good music!

Some suggestions (Ottawa locals in italics)
Friday, June 20 – Joey DeFrancesco Trio, NAC Studio @ 7 pm
Twice GRAMMY® nominated, Master of the Jazz Organ, Trumpeter & Vocalist, Joey DeFrancesco, along with trio members George Fludas & Jeff Parker offer a hard-driving performance that swings straight ahead. The finest jazz organist on the planet.
Saturday, June 21 – Lorraine Klassen, Main Stage @ 6:30 pm
Lorraine Klaasen, eclectic performer extraordinaire, is the daughter of the famous South African singer, Thandie Klaasen, one of Nelson Mandela's favourite singers and an indisputable South African legend. Born and raised in South Africa, she has called Montreal, Canada her home since 1979. Lorraine's dynamic stage presence and showmanship have captivated fans of world music, jazz and African music throughout North America, the Caribbean and Europe for many years. In fact, Klaasen is a virtual embodiment of cultural diversity. 
Saturday, June 21 – Colin James, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
Colin James’ 1988 self-titled debut featuring his 2 self-penned hits “Voodoo Thing” and “Five Long Years,” was the fastest-selling album in Canadian history. This iconic Canadian artist has topped the charts as a pop vocalist, a blues guitar player, and led the swing revival with his Little Big Band. A six-time Juno Award winner and multiple Maple Blues Award winner, he continues to innovate with every new record. Probably his bluesiest best on “National Steel”.
Sunday, June 22 – The Split, Laurier Avenue Stage @ 4 pm
For many of us, soul music is a fondness we just can’t shake, and finding “new” soul music often means digging deep into the crates for something fresh. If you’ve found yourself in this situation, we recommend checking out The Split. The seven-piece band, homegrown in Canada’s capital, plays original vivacious dance tunes that are as much melancholic reflections on life and love. Lead singer Matt Chaffey’s smoky timbre elicits memories of Chess Records’ golden era, while poignantly expressing thoughts of loss, stress, heartbreak, and starting over.
Sunday, June 22 – Montreal Jubilation Choir, Dominion Chalmers @ 6:30 pm
The Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir came together under the direction of Dr. Trevor W. Payne C.M. in 1982 for what was meant to be a one-time collaboration concert between the Montreal Black Community Youth Choir and the United Union Church Senior Choir. Three decades later, this award-winning choir has gained an international reputation.
Sunday, June 22 – Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell, will perform songs from their album Love Has Come for You. The concert will showcase new material performed by Martin and Brickell, along with the unique hybrid of bluegrass and comedy that Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers have been delighting audiences with at their sold-out, critically acclaimed shows.
Monday, June 23 – Tedeschi Trucks Band, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
In just three years, Tedeschi Trucks Band -- the 11-member collective led by husband-wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi -- has taken its hearty roots-rich musical mix to audiences across the globe and become a proven music powerhouse. Driven by Trucks' signature slide-guitar sound and Tedeschi's honey-to-husk voice, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers an electrifying blend of blues, soul, jazz, and rock drawing from an ever-evolving song list. Debuting big with “Revelator” landing a Best Blues Album Grammy as well as a Blues Music Award for Album of the Year, Tedeschi Trucks Band continued that momentum with 2012's dynamic live follow-up, “Everybody’s Talkin’”, showing why it is regarded by critics and fans as one of the most superb concert acts around.
Tuesday, June 24 – Delbert & the Commotions, Main Stage @ 6:30 pm
Combining elements of Soul, Funk, and R&B - Delbert & The Commotionsʼdebut album entitled ʻLet Me See Ya Danceʻ shows influences by such artists as Stevie Wonder, The Funk Brothers, and Bruno Mars. The band prides itself in having an eclectic mix of songs on their record, from soul, funk, rap, and even a bit of disco. Co-led by Canadian saxophonist/songwriter Brian Asselin and Detroitʼs Delbert Nelson - these two have put together twenty-one Canadian musicians to create an exciting project that will keep you smiling and dancing from the beginning to the end.
Tuesday, June 24 – Daniel Lanois, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
One of the world’s most influential music producers – a shaper of albums by likes of U2, Neil Young, Peter Gabriel and Bob Dylan - Daniel Lanois is also the world’s best argument for working from home. From the time he started his own recording studio at age 17 in his mother’s laundry room in Ancaster, Ontario, to his storied home studio in Silver Lake, California (where he recorded Neil Young’s “Le Noise” in 2010), wherever Lanois hangs his hat is ground zero for great music.
Wednesday, June 25 – Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens, Dominion Chalmers @ 6:30 pm
Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens find themselves performing more and more frequently outside of their traditional church engagements. With momentum growing, they can be heard every Friday night at the Greenwich Village club Fat Cat, as well as in clubs and festivals as part of the Daptone Soul Revue. The power and raw feeling in Naomi’s voice and the sincere benevolence of her character seem to lift everyone within earshot when she sings. Her performances are commanding the attention of a growing number of fans, reaching far beyond the pews. Though the experience of hearing her sing can be truly transcendent for even the most secularly minded listener, she has a simple and humble approach to what it is she does.
Thursday, June 26 – Earth, Wind &Fire, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
During the 1970s, a new brand of pop music was born - one that was steeped in African and African-American styles - particularly jazz and R&B. Earth, Wind & Fire were the elements of this incredible musical alchemy that resulted in a Hall-of-Fame music career spanning four decades. Earth, Wind & Fire concerts blast cosmic waves of peace, love and other jubilant vibrations to audiences using eye-popping costumes, lights, pyrotechnics and plain old good music. Sometimes they even throw in magic illusions. Earth, Wind & Fire's message is one of universal harmony, in both a musical and cultural sense.
Thursday, June 26 – Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Laurier Avenue Stage @ 10:30 pm
To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”
Friday, June 27 – Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Main Stage @ 8:30 pm
Mississippi born Charlie Musselwhite is one of the most revered blues musicians in the world. The harmonica master, also a respected singer and songwriter in his own right, has won countless awards during his legendary career including an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame and collaborated with innumerable musical giants over the past 50 years. A fan of the harmonica virtuoso since childhood, Ben Harper begged an introduction to his idol at Australia’s Byron Bay Blues Festival in 1996. Despite the difference in age and background, the two hit it off immediately. Since then, the two musicians have worked together over the years. Each time Harper and Musselwhite played together it was lightning in a bottle.
Friday, June 27 – Lake Street Dive, Laurier Avenue Stage @ 10:30 pm
Classic soul and R&B, jazz, and British invasion form the backdrop for the quirky and irreverent brand of pop for which Lake Street Dive has become known. Combine this with the unstoppable joy of their live shows and near viral collection of Youtube videos, and you get the sum of the Lake Street Dive equation: pure pop music fun. Knock- your-socks-off vocals and virtuosic instrumentals top it all off, and with the release of their third and self-titled record on Signature Sounds, which Popmatters calls “a staggering, monumental disc,” this Brooklyn based quartet is garnering a growing fan base in and beyond their native East Coast. Incorporating the unlikely elements of upright bass and jazz-inflected trumpet along with more traditional rock staples, drum set and electric guitar, Lake Street Dive are equally at home in a jazz club, a dive bar or a festival stage.
Saturday, June 28 – The Hornettes, Laurier Avenue Stage @ 2 pm
The Hornettes formed in 2010 in downtown Ottawa, where they still rehearse every week. You can sometimes catch their funky, soulful sounds streaming out of a particular downtown apartment every Monday night. Fronted by two talented young ladies, Irina and Anna, whoser energy and enthusiasm are at the centre of the Hornettes’ sound, they keep on charming new fans with every performance. The musical heart of the Hornettes lies in the rhythm section, with Norman “T-bird” Hladik on drums, Ryan “Bass Face” Forsberg on bass and “Jazzy” Jeff deValk on guitar, and the horn section occupied by the devastatin’ Ed Lister on trumpet and the perennially badass Brady Leafloor on tenor sax.
Saturday, June 28 – Cold Specks, Laurier Avenue Stage @ 4 pm
Cold Specks is a band led by Al Spx, the pseudonym of a Canadian singer-songwriter based in London, England. Her musical style has been described as doom soul and shows the influence of American deep south gospel with a strong goth streak. (Wikipedia)

JazzWorks Sunday Jam
Carleton Tavern, 223 Armstrong Street
First Sunday of the month, 2-5 pm; cover $5; free admission for students

JazzWorks has started a second monthly jam series. Besides the current evening jam on the third Thursday of each month, it also runs an afternoon jam on the first Sunday of the month. Charley Gordon writes: "One of the hopes is that this afternoon jam session will be attractive to students who, for some reason, generally avoid taverns on weekday nights. Depending on attendance and other factors, we might do some experimenting with format in this new jam."

Host Band: The Kavchak/Kubelka/Menard Trio
     Michael Kavchak - bass
     Anthony Kubelka - piano
     Daniel Menard - drums
These students all are members of the Ottawa Junior Jazz Band, and of the Bells Corners Academy Jazz Camp Band where they work with Yves Laroche.

Whether you're a jazz lover, or jazz instrumentalist or vocalist at any level, you are most welcome to join the fun with the improvised blend of the familiar and unexpected.  Musicians of intermediate level and up are encouraged to participate in the jam.  If you will be calling a tune, you must bring at least three copies of lead sheets in your concert C key for other musicians, and charts for Bb and Eb instruments would be appreciated by horn players.

The jam sessions are coordinated by Alf Warnock at: alf.warnock@gmail.com . Please contact Alf if you would like to volunteer as MC or assist with breakdown/setup for specific upcoming jam sessions in the 2013-2014 season, or if you would like more information about the jam.

Douglas grew up in Chicago and was surrounded by the blues. His father Lovie Lee (Eddie Watson) played piano from 1979 until 1983, in the last Muddy Waters Band. Carey Bell, Lurrie Bell and Eddy Clearwater were close relatives who often shared the same address. Koko Taylor, who Douglas refers to as his Godmother, was a friend of the family. Douglas played bass on several recording sessions in Chicago by artists like Lovie Lee, Blyther Smith and Vance Kelly. Douglas moved to London Ontario in 1989 and was known primarily as a funky bass player. When Douglas began to sing and he started to get noticed as both a vocalist and as an entertainer. His singing was so impressive that he started getting gigs just to sing. He has a huge smile and an even bigger voice. His vocal style combines the power of Muddy Waters with the sweetness of Marvin Gaye. Later he moved to Kitchener and started his current band, The Douglas Watson R & B Revue.
