ARRIGO CAPPELLETTI AND JUNO AWARD WINNING VOCALIST SIENNA DAHLEN
April 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm EDT$20
Inspired by John Lewis, Lennie Tristano, Bill Evans, Paul Bley, for several years Arrigo Cappelletti found the ideal dimension to express his free, intense, elegant jazz in a Trio with piano. At the end of ’80s he discovered Tango Jazz and so he anticipated the contamination between jazz and other genres. He lived in Portugal where, together with some of the most relevant Portuguese Fado artists as Custódio Castelo, Jorge Fernando, Alexandra, he carried out a personal musical project, Terras do risco, creating songs on lyrics of Portuguese poets of 20th Century (for more information: José Serra Cruz). He lived in Russia, as well, where he worked with vocalist Polina Runovskaya.
Sienna Dahlen is a Juno award-winning vocalist. She is also a music educator, an instrumentalist and a composer of six albums of original folk and jazz music to date. Her second to last album, entitled « Verglas » received rave reviews and was signed to the longstanding Montreal jazz label, Justin Time Records. Sienna’s current album, « Ice Age Paradise » was released in September of 2016 and features a collection of new original compositions that were arranged by bassist, Andrew Downing for a 10-piece ensemble of incredible Toronto-based musicians.
