Event Description
Denzal Sinclaire w/Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra

The Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra (SJO) is committed to presenting the highest caliber professional large jazz ensemble music through its programming and through the featuring of local and nationally/internationally celebrated jazz talent. While some SJO concerts are retrospective in nature, others are visionary. All feature important current and emerging jazz musicians whose work intersects with the large jazz ensemble idiom specifically.Through these concert activities, the SJO delivers top-quality art music to the city of Saskatoon and beyond, while professionally developing many of our own established and emerging jazz musicians.

Under the direction of Dean McNeill, the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra launches its second season with a performance featuring Canadian vocalist Denzal Sinclaire.

Vocalist/pianist/percussionist/actor, Denzal Sinclaire is one of Canada’s most popular jazz vocalists, and is ranked among the finest jazz singers of his generation. A graduate of McGill University's Jazz Performance program, he possesses that rare ability to achieve, from the moment he steps on stage, a profound emotional interaction with his audience. From his early days as a canny interpreter of Nat ‘King’ Cole’s mentholated crooning, he’s grown into one of the most distinctive and individualistic singers anywhere. His passionate and sincere delivery caresses every song he sings. He touches the listener with the purity of the message.

Denzal is a multiple Juno Award nominee, a recipient of the 2004 National Jazz Award for “Best Album”, and four-time consecutive recipient of Jazz Report Magazine Award for Male Jazz Vocalist. In 2005, he was inducted into the British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Mr. Sinclaire has performed with many outstanding performance groups - from Dame Cleo Laine to the Count Basie Orchestra. Equally at home in the theatre, film and television arenas, Denzal has delighted audiences with his critically-acclaimed performance in Unforgettable, a musical based on the life and music of Nat King Cole; Tapestry: The Music of Carole King (Arts Club Theatre); William Saroyan's award-winning The Time of Your Life (Soul Pepper Theatre Company). His TV and film credits include appearances in the new Battlestar Gallactica TV Series (dir. Michael Rymer); and, Being Julia, starring being Annette Bening and Jeremy Irons (dir. István Szabó). He has made TV appearances on Bravo!TV, Canada AM, Nashville Now, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Presented by the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra in partnership with the Broadway Theatre.
