Jazz trio next up in arts centre series

Vocalist Edie Daponte to share jazz, Latin sounds in TOSH Music on Sunday

The jazz and Latin stylings of the Edie Daponte Trio will be on display when The Old School House Music on Sunday program continues Nov. 29 at 2:30 p.m.

Daponte’s intimate and dynamic vocal style coupled with her sincere and passionate delivery (in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French) warmly draw her listeners into her enchanting personal journey of respect for the great songwriters of Latin and Jazz standards.

She will be joined for Sunday’s performance by Ron Hadley on piano and Joey Smith on bass.

With her sultry tones and soulful performances, Daponte is establishing a reputation within the music scene of Vancouver Island and mainland B.C.

Her voice lends itself to a wide range of jazz standards, and a vast stylistic diversity within her performances.”

She moves seamlessly from bossa nova to jazz and back again, switching between Portuguese, Spanish and French language numbers effortlessly.

In 2015 Edie has followed her 2012 CD, Love Bossa, a Latin-styled collection sung mainly in Brazilian Portuguese, with the release of Young at Heart, a collection of Edie’s own original material alongside some of her favourite cover tunes.

The new CD is a love affair that expresses Edie’s passions — the wild West Coast of Canada, sailing and her personal relationships .

Tickets for Sunday’s performance are $16 and may be purchased at The Old School House Arts Centre, 122 Fern Rd. West in Qualicum Beach. For more information, call 250-752-6133 or visit www.theoldschoolhouse.org.
