Since launching the project in Toronto in late 2017, Dagan has toured it around the world, including an official showcase in Austin Texas at SXSW 2018, headlining the TanJazz festival in Tangier, Morocco and performing at the inaugural Public Diplomacy [JB emphasis] Week in Seoul, Korea.
Musically the project is a unique homage to the jazz giant and pop star, balancing refreshing covers (“Nature Boy”, “Unforgettable”) with obscure gems (“Lillette”, “El Bodeguero”) and 5 original songs inspired by Cole’s life, music and legacy. The recording and music videos feature exceptional rhythm section Mark Kieswetter on piano, Ross MacIntyre on bass and Nathan Hiltz on guitar, with notable guest appearances by bebop legend and NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan, 5-time JUNO winner Jane Bunnett and “Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing,” Alex Pangman.
