Host Willem Paynter brings the best jazz musicians in Halifax and pairs them with the most knowledgeable staff and best wine list in town (Willem’s words – not ours! *blush*)
Wed, April 19, 8-11pm violin virtuoso Donald MacLennan will whisk you away with his Manouche hot jazz, accompanied by Willem Paynter (bass) and Mike Dalton (guitar). Featured later in the evening will be hot jazz trumpet master James Ervin!
Donald received an ECMA nomination for his debut manouche record “Belleville”, and the lads are giving audiences at Obladee a sneak peak to their showcase performance taking place at the ECMA’s later in the month.
Also this will be Obladee’s frontman Stefan Nielsen‘s last Jazz Night! Stefan has been the stalwart face of Obladee’s staff for many years and we will be very sad to see him go. Friendly, funny, extremely knowledgeable and always on the ball, Stefan was a large part of why the service at Obladee is always top shelf.
RED: Marqués de Longares Reserva – a unique Garnacha/Tempranillo Spanish blend that punches way above its weight! WHITE: Avondale Sky Siegfried – last chance to try this zingy, zany Nova Scotian white before it runs out! BOTH $8/g tonight only!
