Mallory Chipman Band CD Release
Award-winning jazz vocalist, Mallory Chipman, is thrilled to be releasing her sophomore album, Rags and Feathers: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen, at the Blue Chair. After earning widespread critical acclaim and being awarded Jazz Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards for her debut album, Nocturnalize, Mallory immediately got back to the studio to create an album that she is even more proud of: a jazz tribute to Canadian poet and musical icon, Leonard Cohen.
Mallory has spent years cultivating her own unique sound - one that transcends genres; marrying jazz improvisation with the grittiness of rock and roll and the poetic lyricism of folk music. These influences culminate in a perfectly balanced trifecta on her latest project, Rags and Feathers: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen. This recording is a combination of thoughtful and innovative jazz arrangements of Cohen’s music, as well as original music written by Mallory inspired by Leonard Cohen and his legacy.
Mallory has toured this project internationally to Europe, and will be embarking on a Western Canadian tour with this music in fall 2017, but is especially excited to share it in her hometown of Edmonton on November 9 & 10.
