Thursday June 29th VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL -Laura Crema & Blue Shadows on the Trail 12 Noon-2pm Granville Island. 

Sat June 3 2017 LAURA CREMA Quartet VANCITY THEATRE REEL JAZZ 3: The Divas, The Drummers & The Latin Lovers

Presented by Michael Van den Bos, Featuring a live jazz performance by the Laura Crema Quartet

To get us in the mood for the June 2017 Vancouver International Jazz Festival, film scholar Michael van den Bos has curated another eclectic collection of cinematic clips featuring some of the greatest names in jazz and swing as presented in the movies. It’s a Jazz at the Film-harmonic program that spotlights stylish songstresses, including Lena Horne and Anita O’Day; the lyrical Latin sounds of swaying sambas, rhythmic rumbas, mondo mambos and blissful bossa novas that runs the grooving gamut from Antonio Carlos Jobim to Xavier Cugat; and the burnin’ beat of the swing era’s original Whiplash drumming dynamos.

As a bonus musical treat to follow the film presentation, Vancouver vocalist Laura Crema will perform jazz versions of classic movie songs in the theatre’s atrium, accompanied by Sharon Minemoto on keyboard, Jeff Gammon on bass, and Dave Robbins on drums.

Clip show at 6.30; Live Jazz from 8.25pm

CBC / RADIO-CANADA STUDIO ONE JAZZ - FREE

Working hard on their Bachelor’s of Funk degree, the Vancouver trio Dirty Bottom should soon graduate with honours. Blending reggae, jazz, and soul—with a touch of showbiz jazz. Guitarist Langston Raymond, bassist Shawn Hall, and drummer Brennan Saul make up the core of this group, but the big show features guest artists that give it extra pizzazz. Baritone saxophonist Chad Makela and jazz vocalist Laura Crema are two of Vancouver’s premier jazz artists. Add the talents of Brock Miller sax/vocals and vocalists Bianca Carli and Mike Ackhurst, and it’s sure to be a kickin’ show
