Buika, Hiromi and Measha join the 2014 TD Toronto Jazz Festival

(News Release)

Toronto – Three internationally acclaimed musicians, each with their own distinct sound, will headline the TD Toronto Jazz Festival in an intimate series at Koerner Hall, celebrating diversity and world music.

The TD Toronto Jazz Festival runs from June 19 – June 28, 2014. Tickets are now on sale at the Koerner Hall Box Office or by calling 416.408.0208.
  Hiromi: The Trio  Project – Tuesday, June 24 Known for her technique and high-energy performances, this Japanese-born pianist pushes musicianship to unprecedented levels of complexity and sophistication. An utterly original improviser and composer who turns each piece into a thrilling ride, Hiromi is one of jazz piano’s most brazenly virtuosic players capable of playing stride with blinding speed and deadly accuracy.

Buika – Wednesday, June 25 Voted one of the best “50 Great Voices” by NPR and hailed as Flamenco Queen, Latin Grammy Award-winning jazz and flamenco vocalist Buika is blessed with a remarkable voice; raw and smoky but with a tenderness that hits right at the heart. Blending her African background with her Spanish upbringing, a unique confluence of cultural influences that could only produce such an original artist, Buika mixes flamenco, coplas, jazz and soul with popular Latin American songs. A commanding performer who has emerged as a true innovator, Buika is a must-see artist among jazz and music aficionados. 

Measha Brueggergosman – Thursday, June 26 Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman crosses over into jazz in this latest project, performing a selection of jazz standards. Having cemented her status as a fresh and youthful ambassador for classical music that breaks the stereotype of an opera diva in every way imaginable, Brueggergosman is a force to be reckoned with. With an innate musicianship and voluptuous voice, she has emerged as one of the most magnificent performers and vibrant personalities of the day.
