FRAN JARÉ WITH SOULTRAX CD RELEASE
Time 8:00 pm
"The talented jazz-blues pianist, vocalist, Fran Jaré, displays her forte in composing a likeable riff and in-the-groove piano called Trippin On Track One". (1st Soultrax Album) - Dal Richards, Dal’s Place 600 AM Radio
Composer/pianist/B3 organist/vocalist Fran Jaré beguiles the listener with warm, smoky and sexy vocals judiciously interspersed between piano and B3 organ solos. Well-known in Vancouver circles as the founder of multi-facted funky jazz, R&B, fusion, Soultrax. The Chicago-born Jaré returns to the jazz arena with her stunning new CD Copy Cat Coo Coo, an amalgam of recordings with various ensembles of eight originals, from catchy and earthy, to modal, some with lush harmonies. The recording was debuted on June 3 with an interview by Margaret Gallagher on CBC's Hot Air, receiving enthusiastic accolades from all over the province. The momentum of the evening is sure to reach a high with the powerhouse of Soultrax personnel: Olaf De Shield guitar, Dave Say saxophone, Derry Byrne trumpet, Miles Foxx Hill bass, Buff Allen drums, not only with the interlace of CD originals, but their own individual artist features and impressive solos. Rumour has it that a very special talented out-of town guest will sit in with the band that night.
