LEROUX, MCLEAN, VEDADY, DOXAS - HOMMAGE à STEVE GROSSMAN

Steve Grossman, a tenor and soprano saxophonist who played fusion and bop with equal brawny authority, died August 13 at Glen Cove Hospital on Long Island, New York. He was 69. Grossman burst onto the jazz scene as the 18-year-old soprano saxist in Miles Davis’ newly formed band—one of the most coveted gigs in jazz—that stunned the world with its moody experiments in fusing jazz and rock. Once established on that funky and free platform, Grossman quickly proved his swing bona fides as well, in the band of another jazz star, drummer Elvin Jones. His versatility made him one of the busiest musicians in 1970s New York.Although his contemporaries included Dave Liebman, Michael Brecker, and Bob Mintzer, “He was the best of all of us,” Liebman said in a 2012 interview. “We, the tenor players of that time from our generation, all acknowledged that.”

And so do two of the most respected sax players of this city: André Leroux and Al McLean. They will get together for this rare occasion to celebrate the sound and music of one of their biggest influences.... Get ready for some high octane jazz, also featuring Jim Doxas on drums and Adrian Vedady on the upright.

KIM RICHARDSON TRIO

With her undeniable voice and talent, it’s no surprise that critics have hailed Kim Richardson since she first appeared on the Canadian music scene. At just 14, she was already singing in clubs and taking her first steps in the theatre. Gifted with an enchanting voice, she won two Juno Awards for her debut singles in 1986 and 1987, adding a third trophy to her collection as part of the group The Merlin Factor in 1994. At ease in all musical styles, she has shared the stage with Barry White, Stevie Wonder and Celine Dion. She gave free rein to her love of blues and soul on her debut solo album Kaleidoscope (2006), co-produced with Nanette Workman. Richardson made her silver screen debut in Funkytown and proved she was equally adept in two languages with her first album in French, Mes amours, featuring covers of artists from Gilbert Bécaud to Jean-Pierre Ferland.
