Halie Loren celebrates the U.S./Canada release of “Simply Love”, her #1 album on Billboard Japan’s jazz chart, with this one-time-only CD release concert at the Wildish Theater in Springfield, OR on Saturday, September 21.
Fresh off six sold-out shows at the Cotton Club in Tokyo, and from stateside appearances at Birdland (New York), Yoshi’s (San Francisco) and Seattle’s famed Jazz Alley, she will debut thirteen original and radiantly re-imagined gems from Simply Love.
Along with her core band members (Matthew Treder – piano, Mark Schneider – bass, Brian West – drums and William Seiji Marsh – guitar), the concert will feature stellar guest musicians including world-renowned accordionist Sergei Teleshev, Ali Heyer (uke), Daniel Gallo (guitar) and a string quartet (including David Burham, Clark Spencer and Dale Bradley from the Eugene Symphony).
Technically adventurous yet sweetly elegant, the songs from Simply Love highlight Loren’s gift for finding fresh discoveries in the familiar and fusing styles, influences and languages such as Spanish, Hawaiian, French, and Turkish for an irresistible sound that’s all her own. Seats will go fast, so get tickets in advance for a rare chance to hear Halie in concert with her full band, and be among first on the continent to grab a copy of Simply Love.
