WINNIPEG JAZZ GUITARIST JOCELYN GOULD RETURNS FROM NEW YORK FOR THE RELEASE OF HER DEBUT ALBUM
The West End Cultural Centre is thrilled to welcome local jazz guitarist Jocelyn Gould to our stage. With experience on the New York jazz scene under her belt, Gould is coming home for the release of her debut album 'Elegant Traveler' on Friday, April 3, 2020.
Jocelyn Gould is a fast-rising star on the guitar. Her passion for the history of jazz guitar has helped her carve out a unique voice on the instrument that is full of soul, taste and intention. After growing up in the Canadian prairies, Jocelyn said goodbye to her hometown of Winnipeg in 2016 and relocated to New York City. She quickly developed a profile that has taken her to international festivals – including the St. Lucia, Detroit, and Toronto Jazz Festivals—and renowned jazz clubs. Jocelyn has performed and recorded with Freddy Cole, Michael Dease, Randy Napoleon, and Etienne Charles, among others. This past September, Jocelyn began a position as Professor of Guitar at Humber College in Toronto.
Jocelyn is thrilled to be leading a band in Winnipeg for the first time since moving away. Her debut recording, entitled "Elegant Traveller", is a musical reflection of her past several years, which have brought about many moments of poignancy, soul searching and personal growth. Having been on the move for the past three and a half year and living in four different cities, this album looks at the challenges Gould has faced in her busy life. The album reflects her journey to find grace and elegance in an unsettling world, and to thrive in the time she has on this earth. Jocelyn will be joined by local jazz stalwarts William Bonness on piano, Julian Bradford on bass, and Fabio Ragnelli on drums for what is sure to be a special CD release in her hometown. Opening the show is local singer Kenzie Jane.
