COASTAL JAZZ PRESENTS: JAZZ LEGENDS LOST & FOUND WITH RESONANCE RECORDS: CHRIS GESTRIN QUARTET plays LARRY YOUNG
Time 8:00 pm
Since 2008 the LA-based non-profit Resonance Records label has been bringing archival recordings to light. To celebrate a select number of these releases, Coastal Jazz presents five nights at Frankie’s featuring many of Vancouver best jazz artists. Prior to each concert Resonance’s Zev Feldman will speak about the particular recording that each band will honour in performance. Since graduating with a Film Scoring degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in 1995, Vancouver native Chris Gestrin has become an integral part of the Canadian music scene. As a versatile pianist and multi-keyboardist, composer, engineer and producer he has worked on over 250 albums covering a wide range of musical styles. From avant garde electronic improvisations to greasy soul organ music, introspective piano jazz to top of the charts rock and hip-hop, Gestrin is in high demand for his eclectic talents and ability to bring a high level of musical inspiration to any situation.
