Every year the Sunshine Coast's Cedar Groove Quartet likes to invite a very special and talented guest to join them on stage. In the past, these visitors have included June Katz, Kate Hammett-Vaughn and Karin Plato. This year the band is excited to be backing Jennifer Scott, another of Canada's best jazz singers, on Valentine's Day at the Heritage Playhouse Theatre in Gibsons. From the first note, audiences are aware they are in for a treat. As Katie Malik, host of CBC's Jazzbeat, says, "Her voice immediately arrested my hearing and said 'Wake up, listen up, sit down, and listen to this lady 'til she's finished singing!'" Scott has wowed audiences and impressed critics with her beautiful tone, great technique and fluid style. She has appeared on radio, TV and many major jazz festivals and has recorded several outstanding CDs. Also a jazz pianist, she brings a great depth of feeling and musicianship to her shows.Last summer she delighted a packed house at the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival and looks forward to making more musical friends on the Coast. The Cedar Groove Quartet features Ken Grunenberg on sax, Steve Giltrow on guitar, Joe De Leo on bass and Graham Walker playing drums. Since this is Valentine's Day, there will be songs to celebrate the many sides of love, and the band invites anyone who loves great music to attend this very special evening.Tickets for this special event are $12, available at Coast Books, the Gumboot Café, the Medicine Shoppe and Talewind Books.The concert is at 8 p.m. at the Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons on Saturday, Feb. 14.
