Jazz Band.Beat by Beat | In the ClubsCELEBRATORYAND JOYFULORI DAGANBorn in Mississauga some three dozen years ago, vocalist AlexPangman has been breathing new life into old songs since herteens. As loyal WholeNote readers may recall, my cover story onPangman a few years back detailed her battle with cystic fibrosis andher comeback to jazz following a double lung transplant. She has sincecontinued to perform, record, tour and advocate for organ donationawareness.Pangman waslucky to have her lifesaved through thecourtesy of an organdonor not once, buttwice. In Decemberof 2013, just a fewmonths after asecond lung transplant,she celebratedher recovery with atrip to New Orleans.“There’s a differentfeel to clubs there:Alex Pangmancelebratory and joyful. Musicians are treated as the main event, notan afterthought,” she recalls fondly. “Frenchman Street particularlyhas a very active scene of musicians playing in a traditional vein whileaudiences are dancing, clapping, eating and drinking. After feelingthat vibe, and hearing those bands, especially the Cottonmouth Kingsnailing their 1930s repertoire, I started to get ideas about where tomake my next recording.” With her newly donated lungs she returnedto NOLA just a few months later to record New – an album capturedin a new city, with musicians that are new to the artist and even anengineer new to her ears. Fresh, but certainly no easy feat!“I felt up to the challenge. I love the vibe of the recording; it’s likewe pressed a record on a lovely first date! Breathing, singing, is a joyfor me again.”Joining Alex Pangman at her New CD Launch at Hugh’s Roomon Monday November 3 will be her Alleycats: Peter Hill on piano,Chris Banks on bass, Glenn Anderson on drums, Brigham Phillips ontrumpet and Ross Wooldridge on clarinet, as well as two guests fromNew Orleans who appear on the recording: Matt Rhody on violin andTom Saunders on bass saxophone. Congratulations to Alex Pangman,and here’s to New!Bob@60 at Gallery 345:New music, jazz, classical andklezmer, are a few of the genresBob Stevenson has immersedhimself in since the 1970s.
