KITCHENER, ON: Homer Watson House & Gallery is proud to present its final Spring 2013 special live jazz concert featuring the New Vibes Jazz Quartet on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 7:30PM.
Featuring Dan Brennan on bass, Andy Macpherson on vibes, Gary Tomlin on drums, and John Zadro on piano, the NVJQ is now celebrating 12 years of live jazz in Waterloo Region. Joining the Quartet for the May concert is special guest violinist Jerzy Kaplanek!
Jerzy leads the The Pendercki String Quartet and also plays as a soloist and chamber musician throughout Europe, Asia, and North and South America, with over 80 concerts each season. His impressive discography includes over two dozen CDs, including the acclaimed recording of the complete string quartets of Béla Bartók with the PSQ, and Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire with the Blue Rider Ensemble.
The Quartet interprets jazz standards with a polished sound and fluid improvisation. Their two percussionists provide an extensive range of rhythmic expression. NJVQ’s debut CD, “Jazz at the Gallery” was recorded in 2005 at a series of live concerts at Homer Watson House & Gallery.
