Vocalist Chris Martel invoking the Summer Wind, Heinz Meier’s and Johnny Mercer’s standard, is one of the highlights on the program for the University Jazz Ensemble’s spring concert, Saturday, April 6, from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The event will transition from a concert set to a dance with cash bar for what promoters are calling the best entertainment value in town. Besides Martel, a second-year music therapy major, featured vocalists include Aimee Clifford and Lisette Gagnon, backed by a 24-member big band under the direction of Bob Fazecash.
The action is at the Caboto Club, 2175 Parent Avenue at Tecumseh Road. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, available at the door or in advance by phone at 519-253-3000, ext. 4212; or online at www.uwindsor.ca/music. Read more on the concert website.
