Hugh Fraser Quitet / Diane Schuur et le Count Basie Orchestra

Montreal has not for gotten the pleasure of discovering the voice of Diane Schuur, nor the incredibly moving scene during which the young blind vocalist shouldered, with humility and composure, the tremedous responsibility of being thrust into the spotlight by Ella Fitzgerald, who spontaneously declared that she'd found her favorite singer. The compliment of compliments came just Schuur's memorable concert with local musicians, just weeks before the international consecration that followed her GRP recording with the Count Basie Orchestra. The album has risen to the top of the jazz vocal ratings the world over, and jazz's new superstar is a very busy lady these days. Montreal is one of the few privileged cities that will witness firsthand what already promises to be an historic reunion between Ms. Schuur's spectacular voice and the Count Basie Orchestra that catapulted her to the forefront of her profession. Opened by die Hugh Fraser Quintet, Winner of the 1987 Concours de Jazz Alcan.
