I'm looking forward to visiting BC for the first time!
Here's a copy of Marke Andrew's article in the Vancouver Sun on Feb 19:
Toronto singer-pianist Fern Lindzon's debut disc divides her repertoire into 11 duets and one solo number, all of which are performed with great taste and musicality. During the pairings --four each with vibraphonist Don Thompson and bassist George Koller, and three with guitarist Reg Schwager -- the musicians complement each other, never intruding on their partner's space.
Lindzon and Schwager take a spare approach to Wayne Shorter's ballad Infant Eyes, lending weight to the notes, and she and Thompson have the same modus operandi performing Oliver Nelson's Stolen Moments.
As a vocalist, Lindzon has a clear voice that resonates in the lower register and makes direct hits on octave jumps without sliding her way up.
As a pianist, she plays in the comfort zone of someone used to accompanying her own vocals, but then she surprises you.

For those of you in Victoria, I'll be appearing at Hermann's on Feb 24 with Roy Styffe on sax and Sean Drabitt on bass.
I then return to Vancouver on Feb 25 to play at the Chutzpah Festival with Sisters of Sheynville
Just a reminder that Fern Lindzon will be at Hermann's tomorrow night for those of you in Victoria, great show last night at the Cellar with Jodi and Jesse .. N
