CD RELEASE - FRAN JARÉ WITH SOULTRAX 6-PIECE BAND
Composer/pianist/B3 organist/vocalist Fran Jaré beguiles the listener with warm, smoky and sexy vocals judiciously interspersed between piano and B3 organ solos. Well-known in Vancouver circles as the founder of multi-facted Funky Jazz, R&B, Fusion, Soultrax. The Chicago-born Jaré returns to the jazz arena with her stunning new CD Copy Cat Coo Coo which is an amalgam of recordings with various ensembles of 8 originals, from catchy and earthy, to modal, and lush harmonies. The debut recording was aired June 3rd on CBC “Hot Air” with an interview by Margaret Gallagher receiving enthusiastic accolades from all over the province. The momentum of the evening is sure to reach a high with the powerhouse of Soultrax personnel, Olaf De Shield - guitar, Dave Say - saxophone, Derry Byrne - trumpet, Miles Foxx Hill - bass, Buff Allen - drums not only with the interlace of CD originals, but their own individual artist “ features" and impressive solos. Rumour has it that a very special talented out-of town guest will sit in with the band that night.
“The talented jazz-blues pianist, vocalist, Fran Jaré, displays her forte in composing a likeable riff and in-the-groove piano called ‘Trippin On Track One’. (1st Soultrax Album) - Dal Richards “Dal’s Place” 600 AM Radio
