Renee DoruyterWe are very saddened by the news that Renee Doruyter passed away last night. A talented jazz vocalist, she was also one of the most dedicated  supporters of jazz in Vancouver, mainly through the columns she wrote for The Vancouver Province newspaper for many years. A warm and generous woman, her enthusiasm and knowledge contributed  immeasurably to Vancouver’s thriving jazz community. She will be greatly missed.

    I met her many times sitting on the bench at the Cellar. She was always warm and friendly and had twinkle in her eye. A true friend of the Vancouver jazz scene.
