Those who have been appreciating the short trip on a country road to a beautiful setting with top jazz musicians, completed with the musings of Reverend Shana, will be sure not to miss this vespers. Winter Vespers of 2019 starts with the Washington and Cook Band.
Maureen Washington and Daniel Cook, a musical collaboration best described as ‘Funkified Urban Jazz’, play a unique blend of blues, funk, jazz, Latin & roots music. Their vocal harmonies meld beautifully and capture the essence of every song they perform together. Classic standards mixed with well-crafted original songs are performed with Ryan Tandy and Damian Graham.
With now nine albums to her credit, Maureen Washington began her musical career in her home town of Prince George. Maureen slips easily from sassy to sexy within a single line of lyrics, at times echoing the haunting tones of Etta James and Carmen McRae, then faster than the mind and ear can make the transition, Maureen Washington exudes the impish irreverence of Jann Arden and the vocal agility of Holly Cole. And yet, with all splendor attached to such comparisons, Maureen’s musical style remains distinctly her own. Among her many nominations and awards is the 2014 Black Canadian Award for Best Jazz and Soul Artist.
Daniel Cook is a singer songwriter who fuses contagious melodies with timeless stories creating a fresh brand of Original West Coast Roots Music, and a guitarist who blends melody and minimalism into a sweet mix of jazz and country guitar traditions.
Enjoy jazz with a splash of spiritual inspiration in venues with exquisite sound and setting. These hour-long evening services are a unique blend of jazz and spirituality. Each service brings together live music from popular local jazz musicians, a brief meaningful message, and a little of the history of the music performed.
