About Belleville Jazz Festival Presents: FREE Hannah Burgé/ Michael Monis Duo
Belleville Jazz Festival presents: Hannah Burgé Luviano (vocals) and Michael Monis (guitar)
Guitarist Michael Monis is comfortable in any music style. Active in the Toronto music scene for well over 30 years, Michael has toured extensively and worked both in studio and on stage with countless jazz greats, from Moe Koffman to Jane Bunnett, and is the son of legendary guitar master Hank Monis.
From The Whole Note - by Andrew Timar from Whole Note discribes Hannah Burge's sound as "Her Green River Sessions finds its heart in mid-to-late 20th century international jazz currents, (re)influenced as they were by bossa nova, Cuban and African musical streams. The result could be described reductively as a synthesis of jazz and world music, though the radio-ready Black Velvet has a clear rock edge enhanced by Burgé’s hard vocal tone, precise harmonies in the chorus, as well as Mark Kelso’s dynamic drumming and the fuzz electric guitar work by Tony Zorzi."
