Three-time National Jazz Award nominee Alex Pangman brings her eight-piece swing orchestra to the John Elliott Theatre on Saturday, October 14 at 8 p.m. She has become a favorite of jazz fans and dancers alike as she belts out the classic "swing tunes" of the 1920s and 30s, and has become one of Canada's leading classic jazz and traditional swing vocalists. ALEX Her recordings include her 1999 PANGMAN debut CD They Say and her follow-up disc You Can't Stop Me From Dreaming featuring an all-star cast of musicians including such notables as Jeff Healey, Dick Sudhalter, Chris Whitely and Peter Ecklund. Having traveled across Canada on many occasions, she has also made numerous appearances on major television shows. She has made a big hit on "Canada's Jazz Station" Jazzfm91.1, and was honoured to be invited to take part in their "Jazz Lives" concert series that featured performers such as John Pizarelli, Peter Appleyard, Holly Cole Phil Nimmons and Micheal Kaeshammer. It was while performing with Jim Galloway's All Stars, that Pangman met trombonist Dan Barrett (Wild Man Blues, Cotton Club) who dubbed her "Canada's Sweetheart of Swing", a nickname which has stuck, and one that is rightfully deserved.
