The Thing Is…
Tranzac Southern Cross Bar. Sunday 9 December, 7:30pm. FREE/pwyc
The Thing Is play the compositions of Tova
Kardonne. With roots in Sephardi and Ashkenazi, South African and
Eastern European musical traditions, hers is a tipsy mix of
traditional influences sewn into a corset of driving grooves.
The Thing Is’ debut CD, released in April 2012 as a TD Toronto Jazz
Festival Special Project, featured guest appearances by Ted Quinlan,
Tom Richards, Mark Segger, and Rich Brown. Tom, Mark and Rich will
be joining the band for this show, and they’ll be showing off some great new tunes
from this summer’s trip to Sri Lanka.
