Grammy nominated trumpet player Kevin Clark will perform a special concert at Hugh’s Room alongside songstress Alex Pangman. Known as “Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing,” Pangman first met Clark in 2002 when he was living in Toronto. They worked and recorded together religiously, along with sidemen Peter Hill on piano, and Chris Lamont on drums. They will be joined by bassist Chris Banks, and clarinetist Ross Wooldridge for this very special musical reunion. Currently Clark is the leader of the prestigious Dukes of Dixeland in New Orleans, so be sure to catch him in Toronto when you can.
Listen for Clark to display his “impressive capacity for heat and power” (Downbeat Magazine) while Pangman is sure to charm with her take on 1930s vocals, which USA Today praises as, “ebullient!”
