JUNO Award Nominee, FERN LINDZON is a multi-faceted pianist/vocalist/arranger. Fern possesses a technique WholeNote Magazine called ‘breathtakingly beautiful’; respected jazz critic Mark Miller wrote ‘is secure in her sense of herself, her art, and her craft’; New Canadian Music described as ‘one of the most adventurous and accomplished vocalists, pianists, and songwriters on the T.O. jazz scene’; and Montreal critic Irwin Block lauded as ‘a rare and fascinating talent’.
Fern’s three CDs move comfortably and creatively through a highly-personal repertoire of her own arrangements of jazz standards, contemporary Israeli and Yiddish music, and original compositions. Her second CD, Two Kites received a JUNO Nomination as Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Fern has also been an active member of several klezmer bands, composes and performs silent film scores and also is a Musical Director for live theatrical productions.
This evening’s all-star FERN LINDZON TRIO also features COLLEEN ALLEN on saxophones and flute, and GEORGE KOLLER on bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
