ELIZA POPE – VOCALS, ADREAN FARRUGIA – PIANO, ROSS MACINTYRE – BASS, BEN RILEY – DRUMS
At the age of 23, Eliza Pope has already established herself as up and coming on the Toronto jazz scene. Mark Rheaume of CBC Radio credited Eliza with making “vital and real music, of the kind that supposedly isn’t made anymore.” She is thrilled to be returning to the Jazz Bistro, this time to host the premiere of her first music video: Little Girl Blue. Accompanied by jazz greats Adrean Farrugia, Ross Macintyre, and Ben Riley, the evening promises to be a homage to jazz and its offshoots, from classic standards to modern fare.
7 pm start, $10 cover.

With Call Me A Fool, young Toronto jazz/pop songstress Eliza Pope arrives on the scene with an astonishingly assured (and anything but foolish) debut record. With the assistance of co-producer/arranger/pianist Mark Kieswetter (Emilie-Claire Barlow) and an A-list of Toronto players, Pope delivers a record that mixes well-chosen classics and freshly-written originals and highlights her refreshing versatility as a vocalist.
"Feeling Good" shows that Pope can nail a hearty blues song, while "Hit The Road Jack" and the autobiographical "Try" have an empowering attitude. She can also do light and breezy ("Where Will I Find Love") and warm and sentimental ("Here Comes The Sun"), and can shine equally on a tender and mellow ballad ("Little Girl Blue").The result is a record and artist highly worthy of your attention.
