Winner of National Jazz Awards for both Vocalist of the Year (‘04), and Broadcaster of the Year (‘05), Heather Bambrick, combines her amazing voice with natural stage presence, warm audience rapport, timeless music, and some of the finest musicians in Canada to create a show that’s simply outstanding! Her debut CD It's About Time was nominated for "Best Jazz Recording" at the 2004 East Coast Music Awards.

The UofT Jazz Ensemble is one of 14 small jazz ensembles at the Faculty of Music. Ensembles ranging in size from jazz trios to jazz septets focus on performance skills, improvisation, composition and repertoire development of jazz standards.

Adam Solomon was born in Kenya and began performing at an early age.  He was the co-founder of Canada’s great pan-African band, the Afronubians.  After forming his own multicultural band, Tikisa, he released the award-winning Safari and Rocket Express II: African Renaissance Blues.  Collaborating with the musicians of African Guitar Summit, he won a 2005 Juno Award and performed at Live 8.  Tikisa delivers a fresh, eminently listenable intoxicating blend of Worldbeat and Afropop rhythms that will lift your soul and make your feet move.
