The new Yamaha CFX nine-foot
Concert Grand Piano will be
the première instrument for a
cavalcade of Jazz, Rag-time and
Blues performers throughout the
twelve days of the Festival.

Performances on this exquisite
marvel of Yamaha craftsmanship and
grand piano evolution will range
from solo recitals to jazz and blues
ensembles in shows and concerts.

 

In recognition of the dedication to the
arts of the many fine instrumentalists
and vocalists in our region performing
in other musical idioms, the Festival
will be presenting a series of recitals
and showcases featuring a selection
of excellent teachers and students
from throughout Simcoe County.

 


 

 


"This venue has one of the best pianos I've ever played in the Toronto area.
So if you want to hear some great music in a totally acoustic
(un-amplified) environment with a great piano and great musicians,
this is a rare opportunity, and one that should be taken advantage of."
Mark Eisenman - Canadian Jazz Pianist

FERN LINDZON

"An excellent singer and pianist based in Toronto ...."
The Jazz Singers: the Ultimate Guide - Scott Yanow

"Fern Lindzon is an engaging pianist and singer who brings an unassuming
authority, an inquiring spirit and a natural grace to contemporary jazz."
Mark Miller - Jazz Writer and Critic

Fern Lindzon studied music history at the University of Toronto where she received a Bachelor of Music degree. She pursued her studies in jazz with such notable educators as Frank Falco, Elaine Overholt, Don Thomson, Fred Hersch and the legendary Barry Harris. A regular performer in the music scene in Southern Ontario, Lindzon also has three critically acclaimed recordings to her credit.

"Moments Like These" received major radio airplay and
was in the Top 10 of HMV's Jazz chart for several months.
Her JUNO-nominated recording, "Two Kites", has received
high praise and was supported in its debut by the
TD Downtown Toronto Jazz Festival.

Lindzon's most recent opus, "Like a Circle in a Spiral", has
been praised by Shelley Gummeson in !earshot, where she suggested that Fern “personifies a woman who lives confidently with her own instincts and artistry”, and lauded her interpretations as “smart and smouldering” and “sublimely elegant.”

Musical collaborator and brilliant bassist, George Koller, in commenting
on working and performing with Lindzon, has said, "Fern is gifted with a delightful, inquisitive and persistent imagination, the fruits of which manifest as highly original impressionistic arrangements and compositions."

MARK EISENMAN

The Jazz Report's 1999
Acoustic Pianist of the Year

Mark Eisenman is one among a handful of the top 'in-demand' jazz pianists in Toronto.
Born in New York City but based in Toronto since 1972, Mark started studying
the piano with his father. By the age of eighteen he had resolved that he would
be pursuing the piano as a career interest. He entered into the music program
at York University and after a short time discovered jazz music.
With his introduction to this idiom his musical interest peaked.

Under the tutelage of John Gittins and others, Mark ultimately took a degree in
Fine Arts, and as testimony to his continuing dedication to the learning process,
currently conducts jazz workshops at York as a part-time faculty member.
His teaching has expanded to include "The Jazz Camp" and classes at Mohawk
College in Hamilton in addition to a lot of private teaching in his home studio.

Mark has performed in many different venues with numerous eminent Canadian
and U.S. jazz artists including the following: Blue Mitchell, Woody Shaw,
Nat Adderley, Ed Bickert, Rob McConnell, Sam Noto and Pat LaBarbera.
He has also had numerous radio appearances and is well represented on recordings,
the latest of which is Mark's debut recording as a leader, "The Chant".
He has toured Canada extensively with various groups.

"His professional status is based largely on his skill and versatility as
an ensemble player, but what marks him most is an ability to produce,
no matter what the musical company, distinctive well-structured solos".
- Toronto Star
