About the Artist(s)

Canadian jazz vocalist Angela Verbrugge – 2020 JazzTimes Readers’ Poll for Best Female Vocalist – infuses passion and emotion with each beautiful note. The charismatic singer / composer / lyricist spent the last three years touring across Canada, Europe, the UK, Turkey, and Japan. One of the busiest jazz vocalists in Canada, Angela has shared the stage with musicians who have been recognized with such awards as Junos, the Order of Canada, Deutsche Jazzpreis, Prix Django Reinhardt, Governor General Award, Canadian Jazz Awards, and Western Canada Music Awards.

Joining Angela on her 2024 tour dates is acclaimed New York City bebop pianist Ray Gallon. Mentored by John Lewis, Hank Jones and Jaki Byard, Gallon has been a mainstay on the New York scene for forty years performing with luminaries such as Ron Carter, Lionel Hampton, Les Paul, Art Farmer, Benny Golson and backing artists like Sweets Edison, Dizzy Gillespie, Jane Monheit, Sheila Jordan, and Joe Williams. The ensemble’s sound blends perfectly to create a close-knit chemistry to realize interpretations of classic vocal and instrumental jazz standards as well as original material in a timeless style.
