Sep 10 Jazz.FM91Cabaret Series: Cheryl Bentyne w/ MarkBeat by Beat | In the ClubsSeptemberingMissin’ the Trane: There were celebrated nights of packed housesand grim evenings of empty rooms, but the music kept playing fornine admirable years, and there’s no doubt that the Trane Studio willbe missed by audiences and musicians alike. That said, I’m not goingto give a eulogy to the club just yet; in writing to inform of the club’sdecision not to renew the lease at 964 Bathurst, owner Frank Francispointed out that “this does not mean the end of the business, it israther an opportunity for us to take a well-deserved break and assessthings differently.” Looking forward to catching the next Trane!Singers and the Norm: Multi-talented Julie McGregor is an exquisitepainter who, about a decade ago, turned her focus to singing jazz.More recently, McGregor has begun producing The Singer’s Jazz Series,which features, alongside herself, a variety of Torontonian talent onvocals, with the venerable Norman Amadio on piano. Ironically, it’sthe accompanist who’s at the heart of this singer’s series.“I was inspired by pianist Norman Amadio, one of Canada’s greatestjazz talents and sadly it seems, most under-appreciated,” saysMcGregor. “I wanted everyone to hear Norm play. At 84, he still playsgreat ... he loves accompanying and really is one of the most giving,humble and kind musicians I have ever met.”Indeed, Amadio’s modesty belies his legendary status as jazzpianist, piano teacher, music coach, composer, arranger, sessionplayer, band leader and accompanist, dating back to the 1940s. At 17,the precociously gifted Norm left his hometown of Timmins to studywith Boris Berlin at the Royal Conservatory, and soon thereafterbecame influential in starting the bebop scene in Toronto. Amadiobecame one of the country’s most in-demand players, headliningat New York’s Birdland in 1956 opposite Duke Ellington, andcollaborating with far toomany jazz giants to mention inthis wee column.At the “September’s Song”installment of The Singer’s JazzSeries, Amadio, along with thewondrous Neil Swainson onbass, will provide the ultimateaccompaniment for featuredvocalists Sophia Perlman,Vincent Wolfe and JulieMcGregor, and jazz poet ChrisHercules.
