In many Latin countries, the arrival of the holiday season is marked by parrandas. These street festivals are a joyous gathering of people, with colourful lights, food, fireworks, and music in celebration of Christmas. Trio Bembe joins the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra for a holiday concert that captures that joy and paints a musical tableau of Latin American Christmas.

Cheek to Cheek

with Charito

Sunday, February 14, 2021

1:00 pm & 4:30 pm & 7:30 pm

Winnipeg Art Gallery

Filipino vocalist Charito grew up listening to Nat King Cole and Stevie Wonder. Her highly personal, expressive vocal style reflects the breadth of her musical interests, from straight-ahead soulful ballads to hard-swinging grooves. Asked once what her greatest wish was, she stated, “to make jazz a household word.” It's that passion that brings her all the way from Tokyo to Winnipeg next February for a Valentine's Day to remember!

Giants of Jazz - Exploring Miles Davis & John Coltrane

Sunday, March 21, 2021

1:00 pm, 4:30 pm & 7:30 pm

Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain

In 1959, Miles Davis released Kind of Blue. The record's sparse melodies, simple chord progressions and extended improvisations struck a chord with listeners. Sixty years later it is the best selling jazz record of all time and one of the most important recordings ever made. John Coltrane's ferocious, endlessly searching sound and torrential soloing were the perfect foil for Miles. He would go on to record many of his own important records and become another giant of jazz. Adapted for big band, the WJO explores Miles and Trane, two musicians who forever changed the jazz landscape.
