Sep 2 5pm Mike DaleyJazz Trio; 9pm Richard Whiteman Jazz Bandreading some ofthe press aboutEuphonia, startedto have a conversationamong hiscolleagues, andthey were saying,“when did weget so afraid ofpushing ourselvesoutside of thecomfort zone?”And it’s true:musicians tend tofeel that they’rereally good whenthey play withinthis comfortzone ... but theexcitement is, forexample, TanyaCharles directingher piece for thefirst time, placedColleen Allen.her outside ofher comfortzone; us playing at the Lula Lounge, places us outside of our comfortzone because we have no acoustic to make life easy for us. If weplay in a church, or at Koerner Hall, there is a little bit of resonancethat will help us tune, but we have to be so much more accurate atLula because there is no acoustic to help us. But the audience isn’tcomplaining about our tuning, or the occasional wrong note; whatthey are responding to is the authenticity and energy of the experience.And that’s where music comes alive, because music is anemotional communication between human beings, and it starts withthe musicians, not with the music.”Here’s hoping you’ll all check out what Simon Capet is doing atFionn MacCool’s and Lula Lounge; these are exciting times for theensemble. For those who wish to plan ahead, Euphonia will beback at Lula Lounge on September 16, October 21, November 11 andDecember 16. Admission is pay-what-you-can, suggested .On a closing note, isn’t it great when risks pay off? Readers mayrecall that the Fridays at Five series featuring the Canadian JazzQuartet was forced to pause when Quotes (220 King St. W.) closedits doors. A few months back, the series moved a few doors downand one day back. Thursdays at Five takes place at KAMA ClassicalIndian Cuisine (214 King St. W.) and word is that it has been incrediblysuccessful.“We’ve been thrilled with the big crowds we’ve been generatingall summer,” says Fay Olson, who books the series. “Summer isa time when a lot of clubs don’t want to risk that attendance willgo down. We took a chance after only having been going for a fewweeks when it was summer, but I think the fact it’s on Thursdays(instead of Fridays) is why it’s working. Even on long weekendswhen a lot of people leave town on Fridays, we’ve done really well onThursday nights.”According to what I’ve heard, the buffet is spectacular and managerKen Clarke has arranged for a Jazz Menu on Thursdays, featuringclassical Indian takes on sliders, nachos and wings!Let’s be sure to keep this excellent series going. The CanadianJazz Quartet features Don Vickery on drums, Gary Benson on guitar,Frank Wright on vibes and Duncan Hopkins on bass. Their exquisitehorn playing guests this month are Dave Dunlop on September 5,Kelly Jefferson on September 12, Mike Malone on September 19 andColleen Allen on September 26.Happy fall to all, and here’s hoping to see you in the clubs!Ori Dagan is a Toronto-based jazz vocalist,voice actor and entertainment journalist. He canbe contacted at September 1 – October 7, 2013 | 51
