Miles Black Quintet Plays the Music of David Rehorick
Celebrate A Great Canadian Jazz Pianist
David Rehorick started studying jazz piano around age thirty. During the 1970s and 80s, he performed with The Ungroupables, and later Jazz Configuration in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Two early compositions—Vancouver (1977) and Song of Joy (1984)—appear on the album. In 2016, David discovered a folder of compositional drafts that he began developing, in dialogue with Miles Black. In quick succession, Remembering Ian, Pedal Off, and Soft Green were charted. Other tunes emerged through open-ended piano explorations, usually late at night: Da-De-Do Blues, Step Up, Hoo You, Neville-san, and Route Canal. Cozy Sizzle marks David’s first lyrical conception. The Miles Black Quartet recorded the eleven original tunes in July 2018, featuring Steve Maddock on Cozy Sizzle. Recently, David’s album was featured on Mélojazz, hosted by Diane Laflamme Millette at 94.5, uniqueFM in Ottawa.
This evening features Miles Black piano/guitar, Jodi Proznick bass, Steve Kaldestad alto/tenor sax, Julian MacDonough drums, and special guest Steve Maddock vocals.
