The Jazz Examiner says: “Bearde’s sophisticated, revelatory vocals are simply stunning in their bare essence”.

While this engagement marks his Edmonton debut at the Yardbird Suite, San Francisco-based Nicolas Bearde is a bona fide jazz master who first made his mark more than 30 years ago as a founding member of Bobby McFerrin’s wildly innovative a capella ensemble, “ Voicestra”. He has released 6 solo CDs, and has won accolades from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his “velvet tone’ and engaging performances. His silky baritone sound invites comparisons to Lou Rawls, Joe Williams and Billy Eckstine.

Bearde’s music has been critically acclaimed by Jazziz, Jazz Times, Jazz Week and All About Jazz. As a leader, he has performed and/or recorded around the world from Beijing, London and Moscow to New York, San Francisco and Paris with luminaries such as Eric Alexander, Mike LeDonne, Vincent Herring, Josh Nelson and Nat Adderley Jr.

For this performance, Nicolas Bearde is accompanied by Josh Nelson on piano, Michael Glynn on bass and Lorca Hart on drums. Bearde will be showcasing music from his many projects and, in particular, new music from his latest CD, “I Remember You: The Music of Nat King Cole”, celebrating Nat’s 100th Birthday.
