like the last show posted here (which also feature ranee lee), this was shared on dime by ‘plaz_restore’, and again the comments below are from the info file. i love the comment “…and taurey butler (piano). this was only the third concert that butler played since joining the quintet two days prior.” anyway, that’s about it for shows from that great northern land, at least for now.

ranee lee is a consumate performer. an accomplished singer who started out as a jazz drummer and saxophonist, now she’s also an author of children’s books and an educator. she appeared at the 2010 winnipeg international jazz festival with her quintet in her first visit in 15 years. this performance was on canada day and ranee reflected that on this same day 18 years ago in 1992, she became a canadian citizen. she’s well known to winnipeg audiences and they appreciated the passion she brought to the stage. ranee recently won a juno in the category of vocal jazz album of the year for her live cd “lives upstairs”.
this performance is a mix of old and new, and includes a swing version of “she’s come undun” by winnipeg’s guess who. ranee is accompanied by her husband richard ring on guitar and 3 very capable montreal players: david laing (drums), morgan moore (bass) and taurey butler (piano). this was only the third concert that butler played since joining the quintet two days prior.
