IN THE CLUBS continued

IN THE CLUBS continued from page 15C. In the Clubs (Mostly Jazz)discovered Daymé a few years back while on a JAZZ.FM91 safari atthe Havana Jazz Festival, and were so impressed that they have beenmentoring her ever since.“When Larry and I saw her, she was performing with her owngroup,” recalls Bunnett. “I had never seen anybody — a youngfemale — in Cuba at that calibre — and with that kind of poise andmusical strength! I realized that my jaw had dropped as I waslistening to her. And then the next level was when I was playingthe next night and I invited her to jump in with us — to see hercapabilities of really improvising — not like she just has her thingand she does it — she’s got incredible skills hidden under her beltthat are there to be uncovered! That’s pretty exciting to see how farshe’s going to go. I’ve never met a singer in Cuba that loves BettyCarter and Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone — she’s really drawn tothat — she knows where she’s going and that’s really special ... also,she writes great music, at her young age. Very thoughtful, uniquecompositions ... her dedication at her early age — she’s so focused —it’s really inspiring to me.”There will be two opportunities to catch Daymé in Toronto withJane Bunnett and Hilario Duran this month: on Saturday, October 5at the Paintbox Bistro and Thursday, October 10 at Bloom Restaurant.Toronto Jazz Central: Speaking of bloom, Toronto Jazz Central is abrand new organization which hopes to grow audiences for Torontojazz locally, nationally and internationally. The idea for TorontoJazz Central originated at the Imperial Pub several years ago, whenmembers of the jazz community — musicians, presenters, venues,educators and fans — collectively brainstormed the need for such anorganization. A group of volunteers from a range of disciplines hassince worked to create a non-partisan way of showcasing the rangeand diversity of jazz in this city.“The main component of Toronto Jazz Central is a website beinglaunched in December 2013,” says Josh Grossman, musician,bandleader, artistic director of Toronto Downtown Jazz. “On thewebsite, musicians and industry members can promote their activityby creating profiles, listing upcoming shows and other news itemsand uploading audio and video tracks for inclusion on an onsiteplaylist. With the website, music fans, whether from the area orvisiting, will have a ‘one-stop shop’ for all things jazz in Toronto.”The goal, Grossman says, is to make torontojazzcentral.comaccessible; musicians and industry members will be able to createbasic profiles for free, and the general public will be able to accessthe information on the site for free. However, musicians, membersof the public and others in the industry are being encouraged tobecome members for a small fee — musician and general publicmembership is per year; industry membership 0 per year.More details about the benefits of TJC membership and how to joinare coming soon — and The WholeNote will pass them along as theydo. In the meanwhile, these club listings show the fertile soil TJC willhave to work with. And if you are planning to see Jackie Richardsonor young Daymé buy your tickets in advance!
