Acclaimed Canadian vocalist Holly Cole isn't an artist who falls into any single category. Her smoky voice is sultry, yet she's ironically humorous and candid while reshaping traditional standards and pop classics. Jazz is her bedrock, but not exclusively. It's a sound that helped build her a loyal fan base after she emerged on the Toronto jazz scene in the 1980s. Working with her trio of bassist David Piltch and pianist Aaron Davis, she earned accolades, including Juno Awards for 1993's Don't Smoke in Bed and 2003's Shade. Her music remains deeply inventive and atmospheric, even when drawing upon the classic traditional pop sound of the '50s and '60s, as she did on 2007's Holly Cole.
Her recent album HOLLY features "The Golden Apple" hit LAZY AFTERNOON.
Deelee Dubé (pronounced Doo-beh, accented “é”) made history by becoming the first British Winner and recipient of the 2016 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and is one of today’s foremost gifted vocalists to have emerged from the London scene in many years. Embodying a stellar African musical lineage, the eclectic tastes of a London upbringing and a deep love and respect for the jazz tradition, Deelee possesses what Jazz Times called ‘a warm tone, genuine blues feeling and easy rhythmic authority.’ Deelee’s late father was the famed South African jazz pianist Jabu Nkosi. . She formed her first band at the age of 14. She attended the BRIT School for arts and music, and received formal voice sessions under Anton Browne later studying as a music undergraduate at South Bank University and Morley College with vocalist Clare Foster, and forming the first of many musical relationships with jazz pianist Roland Perrin.
Look for her album TRYING TIMES with LAZY AFTERNOON.

From Franklin J. Schaffner, the acclaimed director of Planet of the Apes, Patton, Papillon and The Boys from Brazil comes this action-packed adventure yarn with great performances and production values. In the 11th century, the powerful Duke William of Ghent sends his most trusted knight, Chrysagon (Charlton Heston, The Big Country, El Cid), and a troop of warriors to guard Normandy’s coastal settlements from plunder and pillage by Frisian raiders. Smitten with Bronwyn (Rosemary Forsyth, What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?), the foster child of village elder Odins (Niall MacGinnis, Jason and the Argonauts), the War Lord is tempted simply to take her, under the feudal custom of droit du seigneur, but finds he is falling in love. Jerome Moross's rich score is plus.
