Two of the West Coast’s finest jazz artists, vocalist Kate Hammett-Vaughan and guitarist Bill Coon, having already collaborated on a jazz album, make enchanting music together at BC Scene.

Acclaimed for her sophisticated interpretations of jazz standards, Kate’s free-spirited delivery is perfectly matched by Bill’s smooth-as-satin melodic style and irresistible swing. A three-time Juno Award nominee, Kate has a highly personal and expressive vocal style that incorporates the breadth of her musical interests, from straightahead soulful ballads to hard-swinging grooves and improvisational adventures.

Bill, also a Juno Award nominee, is one of the nation’s great jazz guitarists, a swinging and sensitive accompanist with an arranger’s ear and the whole history of jazz guitar running through his fingers.
