Swing Into Spring w. jazz pianist Paul Benton, Fri Mar 22

February 8th, 2019

Friday March 22, 2019, at 8 pm, $15. Artword Artbar is pleased to announce the return to Hamilton of noted jazz pianist and vocalist Paul Benton.  He celebrates his homecoming with a Swing Into Spring concert, a pianistic cocktail mixing original compositions and classic tunes, with vocals in four languages.
Paul Benton has been a professional musician for over 45 years, playing jazz, Latin and classical styles, and bringing fresh interpretations to the American Songbook. Based in Hamilton, he has performed in Europe and throughout North America. From 1988-1995, he and Roxanne Horbett-Benton, artist and designer, ran the Bay Area Jazz Society, producing festivals and a jazz magazine, The Riff. He has played Ontario Place, Roy Thompson Hall, Hamilton Place, Redeemer College, Hess Street Jazz Festival and Festival of Friends. For the last few years, he has been living in Victoria BC.
Review: “Benton was in raging form at the piano, striding and strutting around with two-fisted blizzards of note-filled solos in contrast with lyric vocals.” Hugh Fraser (Music Critic for Hamilton Spectator)
