Reg and Luanda @ TD Jazz Fest (June 26th)

Reg Schwager and Luanda @ TD Jazz Festival

Reg Schwager and Luanda Jones will be playing their own songs among classics of Brazilian music.

Reg Schwager

Reg Schwager was born in the Netherlands in 1962. When he was three his family moved to New Zealand where he studied Suzuki violin. When he was six his family moved again, this time to Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. There he took music lessons in recorder, flute and piano before settling on the guitar as his main instrument. By age fifteen he was playing jazz gigs in big band and small group settings and in duet with his sister Jeannette.

It was at two jazz workshops conducted by Phil Nimmons – at the University of Toronto (1978) and the Banff Centre (1979) that Reg met some of the musicians he would begin working soon after he moved to Toronto in 1979. These included fellow students Renee Rosnes and Ralph Bowen and faculty members including Nimmons, Dave McMurdo, Herbie Spanier and Pat Labarbera. Since then he has been working steadily on the Toronto jazz scene and in other musical areas including new music (New Music Concerts, Hemispheres and Sound Pressure, among others) and improvised music (with musicians such as Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink).

Brazilian Jazz Music with Luanda Jones (vocalist),Gord Sheard (keyboards & arrangements),Will Jarvis (bass) and Mark Kelso (drums)

Luanda Jones

Brazilian singer/songwriter Luanda Jones presents a unique blend of bossa nova, funk, jazz and samba exploring the Brazilian classics as well as Jones’ own finely-crafted original compositions. Luanda launched her highly- acclaimed debut CD Aquarella earlier this year.

During her decade-long career, Luanda has carried forward the Brazilian musical tradition of singing about personal passion and the love for the natural beauty of Brazil and its people. A vocalist in the tradition of the great Brazilian singers Gal Costa, Elis Regina or Joyce, Luanda’s songs are replete with “Saudade” – the famous Portuguese word that is woven throughout Brazil’s musical fabric – especially that of Bossa Nova. (Saudade expresses the longing for something or somebody that one loves, now gone – perhaps never to return.)
