“I'm not really on a mission to tell anybody anything. I'd rather be figured out.” -Diana Krall
I say, play your own way. Don’t play what the public wants. You play what you want and let the public pick up on what you’re doing — even if it does take them fifteen, twenty years. ~ Thelonious Monk
To me jazz means: I dare you - Wayne Shorter
A space to play and listen to jazz. Open to all vocalists, horn players, guitarists, bass players, keyboard players and drummers/percussionists, scrubbers. The studio has a drum kit--but bring your breakables. We have a weighted 88 key Yamaha keyboard.
Open to listeners too.
Play and read from Real book charts, originals or experimental. Bring your own real book and charts/roadmap if an original/experimental is to be played. Bring a music stand, too !
No set "house band". All players welcome. A different theme each session.
Inspired by the original "Cellar" 1960's concept--a space free from any commercial considerations. A space to explore music, among peers. Listen to CBC Hot Air' s presentation about the Cellar: https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1356127811724
