Vancouver Vocal Trio Pays Tribute to Singing Legends

The dynamic vocal trio of Kate Hammett-Vaughan, Carman J. Price and Matthew Smith return to Cellar Jazz tonight, Wednesday, September 10th, to perform RE-BOP!, the show that pays tribute to one of the greatest jazz vocal groups of all time, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross.

Backing the vocalists are three of Vancouver’s leading jazz musicians, Miles Black (piano), Jodi Proznick (bass), and Craig Scott (drums).

Since moving to Vancouver, BC from her home province of Nova Scotia in 1979, Kate Hammett-Vaughan has established a reputation as one of Canada’s most individual and creative jazz vocalists, and one of the West Coast’s most respected teachers of the art of jazz singing. Recognized with three JUNO nominations since 1994, Kate has also received nominations from the Canadian Independent Music Awards and from the National Jazz Awards including Best Jazz Vocalist. Her work traverses quintet, trio and bass/voice duo and has been featured in numerous projects including film scores, guest hosting at CBC television & radio, as well as collaborations with modern dance and performance artists.

Carman J. Price moved to Vancouver from Regina in 2001 and has quickly become an in-demand singer for many of Vancouver’s top vocal ensembles including musica intima, Phoenix Chamber Choir, Cantata Singers, Laudate Singers, and Soli. His standards quartet performs regularly at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and he is recent vocal performance graduate from the well-respected jazz program at Capilano College.

Matthew Smith studied Jazz Performance at Capilano College for three years, where he trained in vocal jazz under top Vancouver vocalists Kate Hammett-Vaughan and Steve Maddock. Matthew is known for his bop, scat and ballad work, with his vocal influences including Jon Hendricks, Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling.
