Canadian Juno award winning soprano saxophonist Jane Bunnett debuts with her band at the Kimmel Center, performing Cuban- jazz fusion on Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 7:30pm in Perelman Theater, as part of the Mellon Jazz Up Close “Goes Global" series. Bunnett began exploring the crossroads between Cuban music and jazz in 1982, inspired by the passion and complexity of the Cuban musical culture during a visit with her husband, trumpeter Larry Cramer. Since then, she has incorporated Cuban musicians into her Toronto based bands, showcasing the finest musical talent from Canada, the United States and Cuba. Dedicated to interpreting the ancient musical traditions from around the world, Bunnett has collaborated with the internationally renowned Cuban piano masters Hilario Duran and Frank Emilio, among others. She has been the recipient of two Grammy nominations, and received the 2006 Juno Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for Radio Guantanamo Vol. 1.

Canada featuring Jane Bunnett is the second concert in the Mellon Jazz Up Close “Goes Global" series scheduled for the 2007/2008 season. The next concert in the series will be Africa, Richard Bona Band with guitarist Lionel Loueke on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 7:30pm.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
