Jazz Vocalist Marks Release with Alberta Concerts

Jazz vocalist Cheryl Fisher releases her new CD Moments Like This with two celebratory concerts planned in her home province of Alberta.

Cheryl will perform on Friday, September 18th at the Engineered Air Theatre in Calgary (presented by C-Jazz and the Epcor Centre), followed by an Edmonton performance Saturday, September 19th at the Yardbird Suite (presented by the Edmonton Jazz Society). Backing her for the concerts are Alberta greats The Hutchison Andrew Trio with featured guest Eric Allison.

Moments Like This (Catfish Records/2009) features 11 gems from the Great American Songbooks and offers the listener a chance to hear the singer’s “softer side.” Cheryl lays down the standards with finesse and a creative approach, her smooth, swinging style, improvisational talents and impeccable delivery getting to the heart of the lyric and revealing her wide knowledge of the jazz idiom.

Gathering some of the finest in jazz to back her on the album, Cheryl is heard in song with Order of Canada recipient Oliver Jones (piano), Ira Sullivan (trumpet, flugelhorn, soprano saxophone, alto flute), Eric Allison (alto and tenor saxophones, flute), Jamie Ousley (bass), Danny Burger (drums) and Randall Dollahon (guitar). The recording also marks a point in jazz history with Jones and Sullivan recording together for the first time.
