  • Flamenco Toque

    Toque Flamenco is born early in 2014 after two greatly talented musicians and one passionate dancer who have been doing Flamenco for years on their own meet each other with a shared vision. What happened next was the perfect blending of each other’s talents, tons of inspiration, dedication and creativity, which altogether creates astounding shows every single time. The second dancer, Karito Espí, joins Toque Flamenco late in 2015 creating an even more unique show. Each of the band members has a long record of music/dance training and over 15 years of performance experience.

  • Jennifer Scott and Rene Worst

    Jennifer Scott is a Vancouver-born vocalist and jazz pianist specializing in jazz, blues and world music. Jennifer is considered one of the most important jazz artists working in Canada and the United States today. From sold-out concerts in San Francisco to exclusive local club performances, Jennifer’s performance experiences have been varied. Jennifer has appeared at Jazz Festivals all across Canada and in several of the United States. She has also appeared with such jazz luminaries as: Tommy BanksDon ThompsonKenny WheelerSkywalk, and Hugh Fraser, to name a few.

    Jennifer Scott has appeared on JazzbeatWestcoast Performance, and CBC’s Hot Air several times, and was selected to be featured on four separate CDs produced by the CBC. She has also appeared on several TV shows as a featured performer.

    Interactive, Jennifer Scott’s self-produced CD, was critically received and has sold more than 1500 copies independently. Jennifer had two subsequent releases: Something to Live By, featuring Jennifer on Vocals, Bob Murphy on Piano, and Rene Worst on bass; and Live at Monk’s featuring Jennifer’s vocals and her debut as a recorded jazz pianist. Rene Worst is, again, featured on bass; and multi-reedist Tom Keenlyside is also featured.

    Jennifer is pianist/vocalist for San Francisco-based Novo Tempo, a Brazilian/jazz Fusion group featuring the music of Ed Johnson. She has recorded 2 CDs and toured extensively with this group, including dates at Dizzy’s in San Diego and Catalina’sin Los Angeles. She was featured with jazz legend Clark Terry, performing with him at the Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver.

    After a few years of performing and traveling, Jennifer returned to the studio to record her fourth CD, Emotional Girl. Produced by her husband, Rene Worst, this CD showcases Jennifer’s expanded emotional, performing, and creative ranges.

    Jennifer and Rene then teamed up with S.F. Bay Area saxophonist Kristen Strom, guitarist Scott Sorkin, and drummer Jason Lewis to form Crossing Borders, a new international jazz group that performs and records music from the heart, whether an artful reworking of a standard or a new take on a classic pop tune.

    More recent studio work has seen her align her vocal talents with the piano brilliance of Miles Black in the CD releaseStorybook.

    Jennifer Scott has also been involved in many New Music and Theatre productions. Jennifer was nominated for a Jessie Award for her performance in The War of the Worlds (Rumble Productions) by Alex Ferguson and Peter Hannan, and was critically acclaimed for her performance in The Gang (Vancouver and Toronto) by Tom Cone and Peter Hannan. Jennifer is a featured performer at the 2004 Glenn Gould Studio Concert Concert Series in Toronto (televised by CBC).

    As a side man, Jennifer’s vocals have been critically lauded on the past four Juno-nominated recordings by Mythos. Jennifer’s vocals are prominent on their hit single, November.

    Jennifer Scott is in demand as an educator and clinician both in the United States and Canada, and has taught and created many workshops and college courses.

     

     

    Rene Worst has been a professional bassist since 1971. His virtuostic and supportive bass playing has been a Canadian treasure for many years on both acoustic and electric basses. He is as gifted on fretless as he is on acoustic – a rarity in the industry. Rene was educated both in Canada and the US. Rene Worst is one of the founding members of the noted fusion band “Skywalk” and has anchored and produced six recordings with them. He is also a highly regarded Producer.

    Born in Ifar, New Guinnea in 1954, he moved to Canada with his family in 1960, settling on the West Coast where he grew up and went to school.

  • Ingrid Stitt

    INGRID STITT (saxophonist, pianist, educator) was born into a musical family on November 26, 1956 in Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada, and began playing the saxophone early in life. She studied at McGill University in Montreal, obtaining a Bachelor of Music degree there, before embarking on a full-time playing career which saw her working in Montreal and Toronto for the next few years with a variety of performers including Charlie Biddle, Tommy Banks, Bo Diddley, Slim Williams, Corey Hart, Rita McNeil, and Jim Galloway.

    Stitt always led her own jazz quartets and quintets throughout the years she worked in Eastern Canada, but was also a member of several other bands and ensembles. She joined the fusion band “Tchukon” in 1984 and played with them for five years. She was a member of Jim Galloway’s ‘Wee Big Band’ for several years in the early ‘90s, a time when she also played with the Toronto ‘Women with Horns’ band.

    Relocating to Vancouver in 1996, Stitt returned to university, earning her Bachelor and Master of Education Degrees at the University of British Columbia and the University of Victoria. In addition to teaching secondary music in the Burnaby School District, she remains active as an adjudicator for the Vancouver and Surrey school jazz festivals and as a clinician for various summer music schools in British Columbia and the Yukon Territories. She has been a member of the Douglas College Big Band since 1998, and for the past seven years, has played with the “Mother of Pearl” all-female Jazz Quartet. She leads a recently-formed jazz quartet, ‘Groove Manoeuver’ and is a featured soloist with the ‘Good Noise’ Vancouver Gospel Choir and the Douglas College Night Band.

    The Ingrif Stitt Quintet (Terry Promane on trombone, David Restivo on piano, bassist Jim Vivian, and drummer Ted Warren) was featured in the “Sound of Toronto Jazz” Concert Series at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto on March 20, 1995.
