With Sol James, Erin Propp, Sheena Rattai, Julian Bradford, and Quincy Davis
Some of Winnipeg’s tightest jazz musicians join forces with some of Winnipeg’s most powerhouse vocalists to present songs from a bountiful songbook of contemporary indie/pop music. The ensemble will put their own spin on songs by artists like The Alabama Shakes, Wilco, The Weakerthans, and Sufjan Stevens while creating a lyrical story arc that accompanies the incredible musicianship. It’s Keith Price like you’ve never seen him and these songs like you’ve never heard them.
Nu Sounds is about bold ideas and daring creative pursuits. The results have always been incredible and have delighted, engaged, and challenged the audiences. Jazz Winnipeg is delighted to be presenting this series for 2017 with support from the Manitoba Arts Council, Manitoba Music, and UMFM.
