MANDY LAGAN TRIO
November 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST$15
Ms Lagan has had a busy summer, celebrating her new CD, “The Joni Book” as she toured around Ontario performing at various venues and festivals including the TD Toronto Jazz Festival and The Festival of the Sound. Her arrangements of some classic Joni Mitchell songs have made quite a splash on the Canadian jazz scene.
Her band, ORIGINS is made up of some of Canada’s finest musicians. Dave Restivo, Ted Quinlan, Jim Vivian, Andrew Downing, Kevin Turcotte and Blair Mackay.
Join Mandy with Ewen Farncombe and Andrew Downing for an intimate evening of unique arrangements of Joni Mitchell songs, jazz standards and original compositions.
“Mandy’s new recording The Joni Book, is one of the most successful takes on Joni’s music I’ve heard.
Great Arrangements that keep the integrity of Joni’s tunes but makes them sound fresh and new.
Also the laid-back and confident vocal approach from Mandy that makes this recording very strong.”
Brad Barker Jazz FM 91.1
“Folksinger was too limiting a term to describe Joni Mitchell, just as Mandy Lagan, in pushing the boundaries in new and original ways, is no mere jazz vocalist.
This combination makes Lagan’s project “The Joni Book” a must-listen — make that “must” experience – for music fans from both schools.”

“Lagan rises to the challenge of honouring Mitchell’s legacy…. [she] wraps her voice around the layers of lyrical meaning and shading embedded in these great songs.”
