Fresh off her second year of producing the very successful Kensington Market Jazz Festival, beloved musician, singer and community worker Genevieve Marentette will launch a year-long series it's first event called “Women In Jazz” in support of the Women's College Hospital Foundation. She says, “It is shocking to me how little is known about this fantastic instutution and about the women’s “health gap” that exists. In honour of my 40th year of life I am hoping to bring awareness to this and perhaps raise some money too.” With this event Genevieve will launch a year long fundraising & media campaign on behalf of this organization.

In the spirit of the feminine she has gathered award-winning composer Nancy Walker on acoustic grand Piano, the wonderful Carlie Howell on bass, and rising star Zaynab Wilson on drums. This evening at the wonderful gallery space will also feature special guests such as young bandleader and trumpeter Marie Goudy and fellow jazz vocalist Joanna Majoko, as well as surprises. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Women’s College Hospital and include a raffle with prize of a private house concert from Genevieve.

Full Details TBA...

Jesse Ryan & Bridges is anticipating the release of their EP “Bridges” in the summer of 2017. His band; an emerging, eclectic quintet, is poised to take Caribbean jazz out of its niche of ethnic fusion into the mainstream, with its fusion of jazz and Afro-Caribbean music. A true celebration of the cultural, rhythmic and expressive connections between North America and the islands.  

Jesse grew up in Port of Spain, Trinidad surrounded by a rich heritage of music. Being the grandson of one of the islands’ calypso veterans, Clifton Ryan, akathe “Mighty Bomber”, perhaps it is no surprise that he has steadily earned his place as one of Trinidad’s bright, young stars. In 2008, he received a partial scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music, and is currently completing his studies at Humber College, Canada. At Humber he has had the opportunity to study and interact with some of Toronto’s finest and world-renowned musicians and educators including Nick Morgan, Kirk Mac Donald, Pat La Barbera, Luis Deniz, Hilario Duran, Geoff Young and Neil Swainson.  He has played many of the major festivals and venues around the across the island of Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean and Toronto including the annual Jazz Artists on the Green’s, Tobago Jazz experience, Mt. Irvine Jazz on the Beach, Virgin Gorda Jazz Festival (British Virgin Islands), Beaches Jazz Festival (Toronto), The Rex (Toronto) and the Jazz Bistro (Toronto). Last summer, Jesse had the distinct pleasure of sharing with stage with New York based, Canadian saxophonist Seamus Blake and jazz piano legend Harold Mayburn while attending the Youth Jazz Canada Workshop, and just this spring he had the opportunity to perform and recorded with saxophonists Joe Lovano and Donny Mc Caslin, playing lead alto with Humber’s studio jazz ensemble. His soulful sound continues to capture audiences all over, as he reflects on his source, God, the Great Musician. Ryan say’s, “I consider myself to be bilingual; music is my second language and is the universal language of the soul. Nothing else moves people like music does”
