And it’s not justher fierce, soulful tone on the hornthat blows listeners away — it’s thatAlison Young takes musical chancesand has something to say. She’sa jazz musician, yes, “but that canmean different things to differentpeople. I’m glad that I studied jazzbecause if you’re looking at it asan all-encompassing approach tomusic, you can take what you learnand apply it towards any genre. Sothere’s a lot of discipline, but alsoa lot of room for creativity.” Sowho has this Young lady spent hertime listening to the most?“When I started listening tojazz, it was always the more soulinfluencedplayers that grabbedAlison ears. Cannonball Adderley was one of my first major influences,and then I got really into funk. Later on I got into Tower of Powerand Lenny Pickett — after seeing him on Saturday Night Live wayback when, he became one of my favourite sax players. Then there’sAretha Franklin. Eddie Harris. Anybody who plays or sings withsoul! There are a lot of local musicians who have influenced me ina big way too, like Phil Nimmons and Mike Murley — both formerteachers — and countless others. I could go on forever!”Talented, dedicated and likable, Young is easy to hire. As aside-woman, she plays in more than a few bands and can be heardin a variety of contexts this month: at the Reservoir Lounge withAlysha Brillinger & the Brilltones (Feb 2, 9, 16 and 23 at 9:45pm);at Castro’s Lounge in the Beaches with Big Rude Jake (Feb 4 at4:30pm); at the Distillery District’s Boiler House with Peter Hill &Christ Lamont (Feb 5 at 11am); back at the Reservoir Lounge withBradley and the Bouncers as well as Sophia Perlman and the Vipers(Feb 8 and 13 at 9:45pm); and at the Dovercourt House with RobertaHunt’s Red Hot Ramble (Feb 17 at 9pm). In the midst of all of that,Young will lead her own quartet at the Pilot Tavern on SaturdayFebruary 11 from 3:30pm to 6:30pm with Richard Whiteman onpiano, Jack Zarowski on bass and Glenn Anderson on drums.“These are all fantastic musicians I’ve had the privilege of playingwith in many contexts over the past few years … I’m excited aboutthis gig! Being a bandleader is entirely different from being a sidemanand I plan to do a lot more of my own gigs — and maybe evenHILL PEPPARDDOWNTOWNCONCERT VENUE• Concert, rehearsal, seminar space• Competitive rates• Intimate atmosphere, warm acoustics• Unobstructed versatile seating for 150• Wedding and reception facilities• Fully accessible• Close to transit and parking• Historic Kensington Church (circa 1858)Church of St. Stephen in-the-Field on College Streetbetween Bathurst & Spadina • 647-638-3550 / 416-921-6350email ststepheninthefields@gmail.comVenue Rental• in the heart of Yorkville• historical heritage building• Steinway Grand Piano• recital and special events• lighting and sound systems• accomodates caterers• reasonable rates35 Hazelton Avenue, Heliconian Hall416-922-3618 rentals@heliconianclub.orgFebruary 1 – March 7, 51
