Daughters of the Evolution: Julie Michels, Terra Hazelton, Sophia Perlman
Thursday, February 25th is the night Christopher Plock celebrates his debut CD as a leader.
Although he has performed for decades as a leader and sideman, and released a demo several years ago, "Blue Skies for Loveday" is his official introduction to the world as a bandleader. Plock is a multi-instrumentalist who performs on clarinet, flute, percussion and all saxophones, (sometimes even playing two at the same time). His various skills are in high demand by some of Canada's leading music acts; most notably with the late, great Jeff Healey and his Jazz Wizards. He has sung for Harry Belafonte at a private event with The Royal Jelly Orchestra, won two Junos for his sax work on the K-OS CD "Joyful Rebellion" and has performed at many events for JAZZ.FM91 including Jazz Lives, The Sound Of Jazz Concert Series and The One Stop Vocal Jazz Safari.
Christopher is excited to perform in one of his favourite venues in town, Hugh’s Room. Aside from perfect sound and sightlines, phenomenal food and service, they even have a real grand piano these days making it a perfect club for his combo!
You can enjoy also hear Christopher Plock and his band live (along with timeless chanteuse Terra Hazelton) on 91.1 (jazz.fm) on Thursday, March 18th from 7-8pm.
