Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Spring, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists and leading vocalists on today’s jazz scene for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.
Winner of the 2015 Toronto Independent Music Award for “Best Jazz Vocals” and voted NOW Magazine’s 2013 “Best Male Vocalist”, jazz singer-songwriter ORI DAGAN is a popular entertainer on the Toronto music scene. Initially trained as a classical pianist, Dagan earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University with a focus on jazz vocals and classical voice, and went on to study performance, songwriting, and improvisation at Humber College.
Dagan’s critically acclaimed recording debut, S’Cat Got My Tongue, established him as a musical adventurer within the standard jazz landscape, and in 2010 he won a CBC Radio competition that named him ‘Canada’s Next Top Crooner’. His sophomore CD effort, Less Than Three, includes fresh takes on Elton John, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra, as well as Googleable, his original love song to the search engine. The recording earned him a nomination in the Best Jazz Category at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.
In January of this year, Ori Dagan’s “Clap on the 2 and the 4″ was released as a single and music video. He is currently working on his third album, Sweetheart: Dedicated to Nat Cole, due out in the autumn of 2016.
This evening’s singing star ORI DAGAN features jazz masters MARK KIESWETTER on piano and JORDAN O’CONNOR on bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
