L’Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal
Elizabeth Shepherd Poigne de funk, gant de velours Directed By Jean-Nicolas Trottier
December 7, 8 p.m.
Montreal singer, pianist and composer Elizabeth Shepherd’s graceful fingers and sinuous voice cover our perceptual field’s horizon. A chiaroscuro poet, she moves with ease from funk to lyricism in an inventive dialogue with her sound siblings. From her first CD, Start to Move (2006), to the recent Montréal, this four-time Juno-nominated souljazz innovator has established herself as a "jazz virtuoso with a pop sensibility" (The Gazette).
