Jazz at the George


Happening in the George Weston Recital Hall

Winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition Award, New Orleans-based vocalist extraordinaire Quiana Lynell was born in Texas and raised on Gospel. A feast of soul, gospel, R&B, groove, and jazz, her Concord Jazz debut album A Little Love blooms with songs about searching, trying times, buoyant love, deep reflection, and social action.  A Little Love is a heady collection of A-list material associated with Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Chaka Khan, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and New Orleans soul queen Irma Thomas. The album concludes with a contemporary anthem, “Sing Out, March On,” composed by Joshuah Campbell and featuring four generations of Lynell’s gospel-singing family. 



Ticket-holders will enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne and the opportunity to see the opening of Dr. Julie Crooks', Ears, Eyes, Voice, a ground-breaking photography exhibition featuring 41 important visual works by renowned Black Canadian photojournalists showcasing TORONTO in the 70s and 80s.
