About this image
Club Jazz Casino De Montréal à la Place SNC Lavalin accompanied by / accompanied by : Benito González - piano Corcoran Holt - double bass / double bass Mark Whitfield - drums/drums Deelee caught my immediate attention from the very first note of Chick Corea's 500 Miles High to the very last note of the final song with her versatile, mature, and sophisticated vocals. Backed by a superb and extraordinary trio, she performed an eclectic set of familiar jazz classics that were mainly arranged by pianist Benito. Benito's style of piano playing was literally 'killingly fantastic.' I, unfortunately, was unable to hear that many artists this year but Deelee Dubé is definitely my 'coup de Coeur' thus far for 2017. Her winning the 2016 Sarah Vaughan International Competition was well deserved. ~ Sylvain Richard (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal Collaborateur)
