Inspired by the great jazz diva Ella Fitzgerald and the Swing Dance movement alike, Swing Swing Swing! brings together the unmistakable voice of Kellylee Evans and the arrangements of Petr Cancura. Whether you want to dance or just listen, this show is all about the swing! Canadian singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is a chameleon-like performer, whose natural charm and improvisational jazz vocal style have shone on her adventurous journey through jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop over the past decade. In that period, she released two indie solo albums, winning a Juno award for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Nina, her impassioned tribute to Nina Simone.
Juno nominated Saxophonist and composer Petr Cancura is a Czech-born Canadian who spent 10 years in New York City performing with everyone from Danilo Perez to Charlie Hunter. Petr re-established his base in Ottawa as the Artist-In-Residence of Carleton University, the Programming Manager of the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival while continually touring the globe and releasing records on his independent record label Roots2Boot Recordings.
