Sunday Jazz in a concerted barn.
Swinging sounds and My Funny Valentine

By Pepper Parr

MILTON, ON February 13, 2011 – It was just a cool way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  And it was a great deal as well.  For $20. you got two hours of exceptional jazz in a really pleasant renovated barn setting with all the coffee you wanted to drink, several cheese trays and cup cakes – and a beer tasting table and a cash bar.  And because this was Valentine Sunday – there were carnations for the women. The event was part of the pretty regular Sunday Jazz program at the Halton Regional Museum.

This is something worth checking out.  The location is very nice and the price – almost too good to be true.  Led by Polish born, Toronto-based musician Paul Pacanowski we heard many of the old standards as well as an original composition: “Summer Hay Ride” in which you could hear the clip clop of the horses hooves.  Nice piece of work.

The Jazz series are part of the Halton Museum Foundation program – well worth looking into.
