Stephen Sondheim’s musicinspired saxophonist Bobby Hsu to dream up and assemble “ASondheim Jazz Project.”“His songs are not only musically complex and lyrically highlysophisticated but beautifully melodic and singable,” Hsu asserts.“For me, one of the most fun things about the band is factoringdramatic and narrative aspects of the lyrics into the musical decisionmaking, something which as a jazz player I’d always ignoredbefore. Also, this band allows for ‘crossing over’ in both directions:exposing these songs tojazz people, and presentinga fresh take on them topeople familiar with musicaltheatre.” Hsu’s sensitivearrangements aside, his altowork has never soundedbetter. Rounded out bypianist D’Arcy Myronuk,bassist James McEleneyand drummer MorganChilds, the band focuses thenature, effervescent singerAlex Samaras.In the bandleader’swords, “Alex is the onlysinger I know who, besideshaving an incrediblybeautiful voice, is ableto pull off the balancebetween the ‘jazzy’ andthe dramatic elements ofthe arrangements.” SeriousSondheimites, reserve now:Bobby Hsu does Sondheim.March 5, 8-11pm at Ten Feet Tall and March 11, 5-8pm at Gate 403.Preview here:’ WarmthMarch 22 (Stephen Sondheim’s birthday), Winters College at YorkUniversity is hosting a fundraiser to celebrate more than 20 yearsperformance spaces. College Master Marie Rickard puts it thusly: “Auniversity college is where students spread their wings. At Winters,they come together in a way that is totally distinct from how theyperform in their courses. This is where they experiment, take risks,pool their talents and work as a community of young artists. As theiradvocate, I want to draw attention to the fact that two of our mostloved and well-used college spaces really need a little TLC – betterlighting and acoustics, for a start.” Appearing at the fundraiser willbe York’s Oscar Peterson Chair in Jazz Performance, trombonemaster Ron Westray (who will be releasing a new CD at The Rex onMarch 2 and 3); alumna jazz vocalist/composer and faculty memberRita di Ghent; the York Gospel Choir; a cappella group WIBI, andmany other York faculty, alumni and students.
