Jazz Giants Series: DUKE ELLINGTON TRIBUTE Ori Dagan and Nathan Hiltz with guest John Alcorn

August 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15

Every Tuesday from July 10 to August 28, join us at Jazz Bistro for a summer series in tribute to the jazz giants. This series will feature award-winning jazz singer-songwriter Ori Dagan and guitarist extraordinaire Nathan Hiltz, with a different guest artist each week.

ORI DAGAN
Award-winning jazz singer, songwriter and recording artist Ori Dagan is taking jazz to new and exciting places. His rich baritone voice and impressive abilities as an improviser produce an instantly recognizable sound. In live performance, he surrounds himself with Canada’s finest musicians, performing an engaging mix of material which is always fresh and in the moment. Dagan’s third recording, “Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” (2017 Winner: Silver Medal for “Best Album” at the Global Music Awards) is a unique “Visual Album” homage to the legendary jazz musician and pop icon: a collection of 12 music videos with guest appearances by Sheila Jordan, Jane Bunnett and Alex Pangman.

NATHAN HILTZ
Nova Scotia born jazz guitarist Nathan Hiltz moved to Toronto in 1999. Since then he has established himself as one of the country’s finest electric and acoustic guitarists, well-versed in a variety of styles from jazz and blues to classical and world music. Sought after as both a leader and an accompanist, Nathan performs over 200 gigs a year and has toured extensively across Canada with a variety of artists. He currently teaches at The Humber College School of Creative and Performing Arts.

Special Guest: JOHN ALCORN
The Toronto Star calls him “one of our finest interpreters of the ‘great American songbook,’ an artist who always knows how to walk the fine line between respecting the material and offering an original interpretation.”
John Alcorn is one of Canada’s premiere jazz vocalists, delivering his distinctive renditions of jazz standards on the most prestigious bandstands and concert stages across Canada. His list of citations and acknowledgements in music and theatre includes both Jazz Report (Male Vocalist of the Year) and Dora (Outstanding Music) awards.
