Just Jazz Presents The Johanna Sillanpaa Quartet
Friday, August 25, 2017 - 19:00 - 23:30




It’s smart, it’s soulful, it’s jazz. For every style of music that Johanna Sillanpaa explores there’s a vibrant color in her voice to match. Sillanpaa's vocals are expertly clear, gently raw, and intensely bold. She performs slick jazz you can dig your heels into and her ensemble have played everywhere from the intimate jazz joints in their small-but-tight musical community of Calgary to the Montreal Jazz Festival’s 60,000-plus crowds.


Beyond filling venues in Canada and abroad, Sillanpaa’s previous solo albums have also drawn its fair share of accolades and award nominations, including 2007 & 2012 Western Canadian Music Awards as well as a nomination for Best Female Vocalist and Group/Duo of the Year at the 2010 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards.


There’s no mistaking that this highly acclaimed Swedish-born artist has really come into her own with her latest solo album “From this side” which features Canadian Juno Award winning Jazz Bassist George Koller, All-Star trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, CBC Galaxie Rising Star pianist Chris Andrew and three times WCMA nominated Jazz drummer Tyler Hornby. From modern jazz arrangements to catchy originals all in the name of Jazz, her latest compilation of songs is sure to captivate audiences everywhere.
