Lori Pollard, The Jazz Brat
Calgary chanteuse and song writer Ellen Doty released her inaugural full CD titled 'Gold' this past May to much acclaim. Backed by wonderful musicians the album is, to paraphrase Donny and Marie, a little bit jazz, a little bit pop. An excellent vehicle for Ellen's sultry voice.
Already well known in her native Alberta, Ellen has begun a cross country tour promoting 'Gold'. Back by Oliver Miguel (sax/percussion), Conrad Good (bass) and Dan Reynolds (keys) Ellen's show is sure to please any jazz enthusiast.
Halfway through the tour the reviews are glowing. The 'Gold' Tour stops here in Toronto October 9th at the venerable Lula Lounge on Dundas st., Following Ellen on stage will be the reknowned Heavyweights Brass Band. You couldnt ask for a more musically interesting and fun night! There are still a few tickets available, check here for details.
