and arranger as well as an interpreter of jazz standards.

The live session was recorded over just three days at Joby Baker’s state-of-the-art studio in Victoria. The result: A fully vibrant world-class album in which one can practically taste the inspiration.

Adams will be accompanied tonight by some of BC’s finest musicians, all who are featured on the recording: Vancouver-based virtuoso pianist Miles Black, Cuban trumpet sensation Miguelito Valdes, Victoria’s ‘King of Swing’ bassist Joey Smith and drummer extraordinaire Kelby MacNayr. This is
gonna be some cool jazz! http://www.susannahadams.com
