This session of the Twilight Jazz Series features the JILLIAN MENDEZ Trio.

The trio was founded by singer Jillian Mendez (Juno Award nominated songwriter and recording artist with Island Records, 4th & Broadway and Bigshot Records) and drummer Bryan Humphreys (Jeff Healey, Emile d’Eon, and Scott McCord and The Bonafide Truth).

Joining Jillian and Bryan is keyboardist Jason Larmond (Glenn Lewis and Melanie Fiona).

Jillian covers the sounds associated with 70s and 80s Pop and R&B styles. Her song list reflects and pays tribute to the stylings of important singers from that era including Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan; with a touch of Rickie Lee Jones and Maria Muldaur for good measure!
