LISTINGS: SECTION 4JAZZ IN THE CLUBSN.B. For SECTION 4 criteria, see page 30To Hamilton and Beyond!As a born-and-bred Toronto girl, with no driver' s license and alimited budget, and with such a wealth of great music within walkingor streetcar distance from my front door (the pages of listings in thismonth's issue will attest to that), venturing to concerts further afieldoften seems like a frivolous expense. And yet sometimes you'lldiscover wonderful little (or not so little) hidden treasures.For several weeks now, I've found myself boarding a GO bus toHamilton. From the bus station it's about a five dollar cab ride to TheCorktown (175 Young St, Hamilton) where a big band, under theleadership of saxophonist Darcy Hepner, has been featuring themusic of Thad Jones since the New Year. The band includes manymusicians familiar to Toronto jazz fans (including Pat Collins, RussLittle, Mike Malone, Adrean Farrugia, Steve McDade, KevinDempsey, and Jason Logue , to name only a few).While many musicians try to downsize their ensembles,Hepner drew his inspiration from the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra."When you have 16 people [in the band] someone is always going tobe having an amazing night" , he says, and if turnout is any indication,people in Hamilton seem to agree. Fifty people at the very leastshowed up during February's worst snowstorm, and after twomonths, the band has had its residency extended by The Corktown.They've had a special guest appearance by Nick Marchione (acurrent member of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and long-timefriend and colleague of Hepner' s) and on March 15, they ' ll befeaturing guitarist Donovan Nixon.Hepner also loves the "real New York vibe" the band hasmanaged to capture. "Sometimes" he says, "we finish the night and Istep out of the club into Hamilton and it's weird."For the cost of the GO bus, it's more than good enough for me.We want to hear about your " little-known jazz secrets".
