"Listening to the Amos Hoffman and Noam Lemish Quartet, it's easy to feel like you've been transported to a musically intoxicating Garden of Eden" – The WholeNote

The Amos Hoffman & Noam Lemish Quartet offers an inspired blend of jazz and Jewish folk melodies. Amos Hoffman is an internationally renowned guitar & oud virtuoso and innovator; Noam Lemish is a multi-faceted, world-class pianist and composer. For years, Amos and Noam have been collecting Jewish melodies from different parts of the world including Kurdish, Yemenite, Moroccan, Ladino, Russian and Israeli songs. The quartet's lyrical and vibrant reimaginings of these beloved melodies have been captivating audiences all across North America.

Hoffman and Lemish, both of whom have roots in Israel but have spent much of their adult life in North America. Together they create a refreshing and compelling sound, filled with vibrant sonorities, unique instrument combinations and compelling arrangements. The renditions are simultaneously faithful to the songs' origins and rooted in the African-American and Afro-Caribbean musical traditions. The result is a joyous, uplifting celebration, texturally rich music, filled with groove, lyrical melodies and outstanding solos.

Amos Hoffman
Amos Hoffman is an Israeli Jazz Guitarist known worldwide as a pioneer in fusing the rhythms and melodic themes of the Middle East with Modern Jazz. Hoffman started playing guitar at the age of 6, and oud a few years later. He studied guitar privately, and later attended the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His search for new musical experiences led him first to Amsterdam, and then to New York City, where he played jazz with both established musicians and up and coming talents like Jason Lindler, bassist Avishai Cohen, and Claudia Acuna. To date, Hoffman has recorded 5 solo albums, The Dreamer (1999), Na'ama (2006), Evolution (2008) and Carving (2010). He has also contributed on dozens more for artists in Israel and worldwide including Avishai Cohen, Kiko Berenguer (Spain), and Jan Mlynarski (Poland). In 2013 Amos was awarded one of Israel's most prestigious prizes – The Landau Prize for Arts and Sciences for outstanding achievement in the field of Jazz. Now based in the U.S., Hoffman looks forward to creating new musical adventures and reaching an even larger audience.

Peter Boyd: Cruel & Unusual

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020 at 9:30pm EST

PWYC

Peter Boyd (guitar/voice), Gary Taylor (drums), Ed Roth (accordion), Tom Griffiths (bass)


Peter Boyd
Peter Boyd has been a songwriter for over thirty years. Drawing on gospel and blues from Chicago all the way back to the Delta and re-invented upside-down-and-backwards, Peter's songs are a sepia-tinged glimpse into his messy, not-fully-developed soul where faith has as much a chance as folly to send you careening into the abyss.

Peter's new CD 'Beulahland' is garnering great reviews, most recently a rave from Greg Quill in the Toronto Star - "stunning and powerful blues-rooted original songs and astonishing guitar wizardry. Among the best of the year's roots/blues crop."

Bossa Tres

Bossa Tres

Thursday, February 13th, 2020 at 7pm EST

PWYC

Bossa Tres, Victor Monsiváis (guitar), Abbey Sholzberg (bass)


Bossa Tres
Bossa Três has been performing Bossa Nova and Brazilian Samba classics, as well as a variety of Brazilian rarities and original material since 2001. Their repertoire draws from the greatest of the Brazilian composers and performers like Ary Barroso, Dorival Caymmi, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Newton Mendoça, João Gilberto, Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso.

Bossa Três leader Victor Monsivais: vocalist, songwriter, guitarist; has been playing and singing Bossa Nova for over forty years, in particular the music of Antônio Carlos Jobim who, along with Thelonious Monk and Jimmy Van Heusen, is one of his favorite composers. The Trio consists of Victor, who sings Jobim's songs in their original Portuguese versions and plays the guitar with the true Bossa beat; bassist Frank Sants who plays a deep and mellow-toned bass, and drummer/percussionist Federico Monsivais who plays with a soft, classical feel, yet, with the attack and syncopation of authentic Latin rhythm.

The rarely heard hard-smooth Brazilian and Latin percussion of Bossa Três recreates the atmosphere of a quiet night in Copacabana... the mood of a Carnival in Bahia...a hot Tropicana session in La Habana, or the romance of a classical jazz evening. Bossa Três' performances bring life to the pieces they play, creating an aura of "alegría and saudade" which are the two basic ingredients of Brazilian music. Bossa Três often appears as a quartet or quintet featuring talented guest musicians, this evening, pianist Dan Farrell and Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet and Flute player Brendan Cassidy, both a perfect fit to Jobim's music and long time Victor's associates, will be joining the ensemble.

Many have said that listening to Bossa Três is like being transported to a warm evening in Rio De Janeiro in the fifties…

Blues & Troubles


Blues & Troubles
Blues & Troubles is a young Toronto based band that plays traditional style blues, R+B, and old-school country. The leaders of the band are Kendra Kwiatkowski and Oscar Tang, and the rest of the band can be a great revolving door of musicians that are on the blues scene in the city. Influenced by songs and artists from the 50's and earlier, B&T likes to re-imagine old favourites by the kings of the blues from a woman's perspective, and to hunt out gems by the first blues queens that are largely unknown today. Always trying to channel Muddy Waters and Big Mama Thornton, this band is hoping to get rid of auto tune in your music and bring back that true blues feeling. Rawness and emotion are a big part of music, and currently the big goal within the band is to become better and braver improvisors on stage, since so many of the blues greats would easily create for their audiences live and on the fly. That is how you get that special moment in a song where your hair stands on end! It can be a scary prospect, but to stay true to the real blues sound you have to mix up who is playing, don't play just a part, converse musically with your band mates, record it live, and even if you aren't certain, go for the extra feeling on that high note! That is what real music, and particularly the blues, is all about.

Zacharin's recordings have garnered praise from fans and critics alike. silence spoken here (1997) was called "an understated classic...musical versatility and lyrical depth" (Xpress-Ottawa); Scene Roots and Blues dubbed aLIVE! (2000) "a real gem"; and a review of crow dark wind (2001) in Minor 7th elicited the following: "like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar...world-wise songwriting."
