Jazz star performs with Alberni District Secondary School

Genie-nominated singer Terra Hazelton and Canadian jazz guitarist Nathan Hiltz will perform with ADSS senior jazz band on Oct. 23 at Char's.

Genie-nominated singer Terra Hazelton and Canadian jazz guitarist Nathan Hiltz will perform with the Alberni District Secondary School senior jazz band in a concert at Char’s Landing, Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.

The 40-piece senior jazz band will participate in a workshop with Hazelton prior to the concert.

The band needed a place to perform because the auditorium at the school is not finished yet. They approached Char’s Landing as a substitute.

Hazelton is stopping in at Port Alberni as part of her 11-stop West Coast tour in support of her new album, That’s All.

Venturing away from the highly-produced sounds of her last effort, Gimme Whatcha Got, That’s All is a pared-down tribute to early jazz recordings. The album features classics including Duke Ellington’s In My Solitude and the title track, That’s All by Alan Brandt and Bob Haymes.

Hazelton also explores some new numbers, such as the heart- wrenching ballad, Lure of the Little Voices, written by Jeff Gladstone with lyrics from the poem of the same name by Canadian poet, Robert Service.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Char’s Landing is located at 4815 Argyle St. at Fifth Avenue. Partial proceeds will go towards the Char’s Landing wheelchair ramp fund.
