UPCOMING DINNER & CONCERTS
Miguel de Armas Trio – January 30th – 7pm
Internationally renowned Cuban pianist Miguel de Armas moved to Canada in 2011, bringing with him a rich and sophisticated musical heritage gleaned over many years of study, performance and creation. As co- founder of N.G. La Banda — one of Cuba’s most legendary timba bands — de Armas packed concert halls around the world. For over a decade, Miguel toured with this band and performed at prestigious Jazz festivals and venues around the world. Miguel has recorded over 60 albums, and collaborated with renowned Cuban and international artists and musicians. In 2012 Miguel brought his musical talents to Ottawa, which he considers his adopted home. Since then he has been introducing audiences of the National Capital region to the works of an original Cuban talent whose performances are nothing short of a master class in Afro Cuban jazz. Miguel Angel trio will feature Cuban percussionist Magdelys Sav and Grammy winner Bass player Roberto Riveron.

Bloom Restaurant is proud to present the incredible artistry of one of the leading jazz guitarists and vocalists in the world today. Jocelyn Gould is an accomplished guitarist, vocalist and educator.

Jocelyn has recorded with Michael Dease, Diego Rivera and Randy Napoleon for their upcoming records, and her debut album as a leader will be released in early 2020. She has performed in the groups of Grammy nominated vocalist/pianist Freddy Cole, trumpeter Etienne Charles and trombonist Michael Dease, to name a few.

Elizabeth Shepherd Trio – Feb 27th – 7pm
Velvety-voiced pianist Elizabeth Shepherd arrived on the international scene in 2006 when her debut album Start To Move was voted one of the top jazz albums of the year by the listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the Montreal-based soul-jazz innovator has established herself as one of the most alluring and imaginative artists on the scene today. Versed in equal parts Stevie Wonder, Salvation Army brass bands and classical sonatas, it is perhaps no surprise that this globetrotting talent has developed such a distinct and unique voice. Elizabeth has been hailed as “a jazz virtuoso blessed with a pop sensibility”, praised by critics worldwide for her arrestingly original writing and soulful delivery. Along with artists like Esperanza Spalding, Robert Glasper, and Jose James she is seen as part of a wave of jazz musicians bringing the art form to a new generation of music fans.
