Taurey Butler Trio
What better than Vince Guaraldi’s famous composition, A Charlie Brown Christmas, to put you in the holiday mood. Favourites such as Linus and Lucy, Christmas Time is Here, Skating and My Little Drum are just a few of the pieces on the program. Montreal’s fabulous Taurey Butler Trio performs a vibrant interpretation of this famous album, and guest singer Éléonore Lagacé will join the trio for a few songs. Taurey Butler “is a phenomenal jazz pianist of the highest calibre who has moved thousands of people here and abroad with his extraordinary talent” (Montreal Gazette). Taurey has “a keen interest in learning and a predilection for Oscar Peterson-style piano playing … the Taurey Butler Trio is a take-no-prisoners piano trio capable of knocking over anything in its path” (All About Jazz). Musicians include: Taurey Butler, piano; Éric Lagacé, bass; Wali Muhammad, percussions; and Éléonore Lagacé, guest singer.
