No two shows alike for Adams and fans can’t get enough

Tickets for Osborne Bay Pub apperance sure to be a hot commodity

Known for her hip phrasing, keen stylings and exuberant delivery, Victoria-based jazz vocalist Susannah Adams is poised to set your hearts a-flutter when she returns to Pat’s House of Jazz at Crofton’s Osborne Bay Pub on Sunday, April 14.

She’ll be accompanied by Cuban-born piano virtuoso Pablo Cardenas, bassist Peter Dowse and drummer Damian Graham — some of the most exciting musicians in the business.

Separately, Adams and Cardenas sell out shows at the jazz club; together they’ll pack quite a punch, so make your reservations early for this blockbuster show.

“I think this is the biggest-drawing show of the season,” noted jazz series publicist Ron Joiner. “Susannah’s hugely popular and becoming more so since her recent appearance on the CBC’s Hot Air and a hugely successful show at Frankie’s in Vancouver.”

Adorned with flaming tresses and a spirit to match, Adams is acclaimed as being one of “the best singers in Victoria” by Times Colonist reviewer Mike Devlin and she is well regarded among her peers for her flair for improvisation and for forging new collaborations. No two shows are alike.

Celebrated Vancouver guitarist Oliver Gannon has lauded her “unique approach to it all,” adding, “you don’t play it safe.”

Since the release of her debut album As the Morning Light last year, Adams has been flying high, reaching a growing audience both on Vancouver Island and on the mainland.

After paying tribute to the great Aretha Franklin with four other top Victoria jazz vocalists at a sold-out concert earlier this year, Adams says the Queen of Soul’s influence has been percolating into her music lately.

For a taste of Adams’ music, check out her version of Blue Skies at her CD release party at Hermann’s or her performance of Skylark at the Aretha Franklin Tribute Show. Both are on YouTube.

Cowichan Valley fans can look forward to hearing Adams explore new stylings as she leads this dynamic quartet to deliver some favourite jazz standards along with some new compositions of her own.

The show is part of a regular Sunday afternoon jazz series at the all-ages Osborne Bay Pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton, presented by the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society. Reservations are recommended. Tables will be held until 1:30 p.m.
