Vocal jazz in Vancouver this weekend

Gospel and jazz vocalist Leora Cash appears at O’Doul’s this Thursday through Saturday nights in Vancouver (Feb. 8-10) before heading off to Port Coquitlam to perform on Sunday at The Terry Fox Theatre.

The Alberta native now makes Vancouver her home, and has quickly built a loyal audience on the west coast. Cash will perform with the cream of Vancouver’s jazz scene including pianist Ross Taggart & bassist Paul Rushka on Thursday, Tony Foster (piano) & Russ Botten (bass) Friday & Saturday, and with a trio on Sunday featuring Tony Foster (piano), Russ Botten (bass) and the great Craig Scott (drums).

Cash, who has a strong record in the Gospel world with her debut release, the West Coast Music Awards nominated Tears of Joy (2000), and her critically acclaimed 2004 Inspiration, has released her first jazz CD, the gospel-tinged My Heart Stood Still in 2005. The CD features Russ Botten (bass), Tony Foster (piano), Craig Scott (drums), Miles Foxx-Hill (bass), Ross Taggart (piano) and drummer Jon Wilkan (New York). The CD has garnered sales across North America, as well as Europe and Asia.

Following this weekend’s performances, Cash will return to Vancouver to appear at the Cellar on March 11th to debut her tribute to Joni Mitchell Both Sides Now, a project co-written with Ross Taggart.
