FROM NYC:JOHNNY O’NEALwith DAVE YOUNG andTERRY CLARKEBook Your Table Today!416-363-5299251 Victoria Streetwww.jazzbistro.caBeat by Beat | In the ClubsTHE HOGTOWN SYNCOPATORS’ DREW JURECKAcontinued from page 15While most of the time Jurecka performs on the violin, in theHogtown Syncopators he stretches out on his other instrumentsand sings in a heart-melting Louis Armstronginfluencedmanner. It’s not that he growls like Satchmo, but ratherrespects the melody while improvising ever so subtly in a hornlikeway, all the while swinging you to good health.As a sideman he has played, written or arranged on more than 150records, including several JUNO-winning and Grammy-nominatedalbums, film and television soundtracks. What about his ownrecording?“I’ve long been pressured by lots of friends and supporters to putout a solo disc. I’ve never had a strong drive to record “my own”project. I love playing music, arranging, producing and doing all ofthe things that I’m fortunate enough to do, and I feel pretty artisticallysatisfied.However, I do have a couple of days booked at CanterburyStudios in October with Mark Kieswetter and Clark Johnston. I’mexcited to finally record a record as a leader.” Cheers to this news! Itwill be very interesting to hear the choices Jurecka makes as a leader.For a sneak preview, see him along with Kieswetter on piano and DaveYoung on bass at the Home Smith Bar on Saturday October 11 from7:30 to 10:30pm.THE UNSINKABLE TERRY WILKINSAnother musician who can easily be described as versatile is bassistTerry Wilkins. The veteran Toronto-based musician, composer, bandleader,arranger, producer and teacher is a native of Sydney, Australia.He has been working here for over 40 years, but has kept a trace ofan accent.“I moved to Toronto on March 14, 1971. I arrived with a band – wewere called Flying Circus and we came to Toronto to wait out thenegotiations for a record deal with Capitol U.S. We stayed here for afew months and played bars and high school dances. We decided weliked Toronto, so after returning to Australia for one more nine-weeknational tour, we returned to Toronto, got our Capitol deal and I amstill here.”Since the days of that country-rock band, he has worked with animpressively diverse group of artists including Lighthouse, Big Sugar,Rough Trade and David Wilcox, as well as backing up visiting artistssuch as Dr. John, Eddie (Cleanhead) Vinson, Maria Muldaur andJohn Hammond.These days Wilkins is very excited about his recently formed band,The Sinners Choir (there is no apostrophe, I checked) which is a funnyname for a powerhouse trio. Halfway between roots and rock ‘n’ roll,this unique cross-generational formation of three sideman who singin harmony, in addition to playing bass, guitar and drums, rocks inevery sense of the word.“Four years ago, I got the call from Brian Cober of The Nationals togo play a Sunday night at Grossmans. I had done many of these overthe years since their dear bassist, Paul, passed away.“In this case, Brian informed me that he would be in Israel but hewas sending in a young guitarist-singer named Adam Beer-Colacino.I had not heard of him. He was about 20 years old. We talked aboutwhat we were going to start with. From the literal first note weplayed together we had an innate understanding of how to intersect.Last November we added Adam Warner on drums after havinghad many gigs over those years with various drummers. Adam’swriting and singing made him an invaluable addition. As a bonus, thevery first time we ventured to sing a three-part, we made the soundwe currently make. No strenuous rehearsal or detailed planning. Itjust worked.”These days you can see and hear The Sinners Choir on most Tuesdaynights at 10pm at The Cameron House, a venue which is very dearto Wilkins.“I have played there right back in time and over the intervening 33years I have nearly always had one connection or another that kept me54 | October 1 - November 7, 2014

playing there, whether it was seminal Queen Street band V featuringMojah, Lorraine Segato and Billy Bryans and myself, through to theearly days of Big Sugar and its early associations with Molly Johnson,and on to standing on the bar with Jake and the Blue Midnights –right up to now with my work there with The Sinners Choir. I loveThe Cameron and I am so delighted that Anne Marie’s son Cosmo andMike McKeown had taken the spirit of The Cameron and pulled it intothe 21st century keeping all the best and adding in their take. May itlast another 100 years.”Ori Dagan is a Toronto-based jazz musician andeducator who can best be reached at oridagan.com80 Gladstone80 Gladstone Ave. (full schedule)Alleycatz2409 Yonge St. 416-481-6865alleycatz.caAll shows: 9pm unless otherwise indicated.Call for cover charge info.Every Mon 8pm Salsa Night w/ Frank Bischunand free lessons.
