RESPECT - The Music of Aretha Franklin

with Ego Spank and

Canadian Museum for Human Rights

The undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin is synonymous with songs like Chain of Fools, Natural Woman, Freeway of Love, and RESPECT. Her lyrics were a harbinger of modern-day feminism: strong, independent, demanding of equality and freedom, sung with a voice that would accept nothing less. Joining the WJO for this show is a tour-de-force of local talent – Murray Pulver, Marc Arnould, Daniel Roy and Gilles Fournier, known collectively as Ego Spank, and vocalists Jennifer Hanson, Heitha Forsyth and Andrina Turenne.

Jazz music, since its humble beginnings in Congo Square, has been a fusion of folk, classical and popular music. As the artform spread, jazz embraced and adapted music from all over the world, giving us countless flavours and variations. To help the WJO explore folk music in jazz, six-time Juno nominee John Stetch joins the group as our special guest. Stetch, over the span of his 15 recordings, has fused classical and folk music with own fearless creativity, boundless imagination and humour.
