Led by Burton, the evening will bring together a mix of jazz and jazz influenced music including New Orleans, Cuban, jazz jam, hip hop, R&B, and funk; set to the backdrop of a full horn section, complete with back-up singers. An A-list of special guests including Mike Cowie and the Booty Boppin’ Brass Band, Jeff Godspeed – and many more – are sure to make this a collaborative and creative live music concert unlike any other.
Known as one of Canada’s greatest voices, award-winning jazz vocalist Molly Johnson is a mother, singer-songwriter, artist and philanthropist, who has just released her highly anticipated new album, “Meaning To Tell Ya”, produced by Larry Klein. It’s more than a jazz record. It’s funk, it’s soul, it’s groove played by some of Canada’s best musicians. Says Molly: “Working with Larry was magic. When it was finally my turn, I jumped at the opportunity. This is a record I have been wanting to make for years. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!” Says Larry: “Molly has the kind of musical gift that cannot be cultivated by musical education or assiduous practice. She has great natural musical instincts, and an irresistible signature to her voice. She is a rare and wonderful talent.”
