Brandi Disterheft Trio

Vancouver FanClub
1050 Granville Street
Sunday, November 11th @ 8pm
Tickets $15 & $18

Juno Award winner Brandi Disterheft returns to her roots to perform at Vancouver FanClub on Sunday, November 11.

Brandi will be touring behind her latest release Gratitude on Justin Time Records from Montreal. From her deep, resonating upright bass lines and potent improvisations, it’s clear that 27 year-old Vancouver native Disterheft who currently resides in New York City has a healthy respect for the jazz tradition. Her bass mentors include Don Thompson, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and Ron Carter demonstrating the artist’s low-end pedigree.

Gratitude, the artist’s third release features an all star crew including Renee Rosnes, Vincent Herring, Anne Drummond, Sean Jones and Gregory Hutchinson. This latest recording is an increment leap from the 2007 Juno Award-winning Debut and 2009’s Second Side. From the up-tempo and fiery “Portrait Of Duke” to the self-penned “Blues For Mandela,” Disterheft demonstrates her mature approach to her musical craft, bringing out the “Mingus soul” in her bass playing while her ambient voice takes the listener down the path of lover’s lane.

Presently continuing her studies in orchestration at Julliard, Brandi has taken time out to tour Europe, Japan, China, Haiti and even a show at Carnegie Hall. Currently in the middle of a western Canadian tour that takes her to several towns and cities in British Columbia, Brandi Disterheft is as captivating as ever with her fiery bass playing and singing in both French and English with her ambient and dreamy vocals.

Vancouver FanClub is a brand new club with southern style cuisine conveniently located at 1050 Granville St. Advance tickets are available at the club or by phone at 604 689 7720 or through Tickets Tonight at 604 684 2787 Doors at 6pm and show at 8pm.

    I’m delighted to see that Brandi is doing so well. She and her mother, Fran Jarre with whom I have performed several times, were two of the few musical acquaintances who came to visit me when I was in hospital several years ago. I will never forget their kindness in doing so. It meant a lot to me. I hope to get down and hear you perform, Brandi. Break a leg!
