Daniel Lapp Quartet
A Tribute to Chet Baker
Saturday, November 14, 2009
8pm, Hornby Hall
Join us for this special event with the Daniel Lapp Quartet, featuring a stellar line-up of some of the Westcoast's
finest jazz musicians. This quartet can swing like they were cuttin' up Birdland in 1948. And they can play it real cool just like the California 50's sound while capturing vitality and a freshness that makes the music contemporary once again. Drawing largely from the repertoire of Chet Baker, the Daniel Lapp Quartet plays many of the hits from Chet's recordings while throwing in the occasional original tune. Songs like "My Funny Valentine" and "Let's Get Lost" are regulars in the DLQ songbook along with Burt Bacharach's "Close To You" and Elvis Costello's "Almost Blue". In 1999, at his second New York appearance performing Chet's music, Daniel discovered that there were five other trumpet playing vocalists in the audience. Word had traveled quickly that this man from Canada's Westcoast "can really do the Chet thing!" Currently, Daniel is working on a series of plays with a New York playwright based loosely on the life of Chet Baker.
Tickets are available at the GasBar, online at hornbyfestival.bc.ca until midnight on November 12th, at the Festival Box Office on Friday, November 13, 11am to 3pm and at the door on the evening of the performance. See the tickets page of for pricing.
