|The Laila Biali Trio
Sunday, April 30, 2017
Performing Arts Center
Pianist and singer LAILA BIALI will perform in concert on Sunday, April 30, at
3:00pm, in the Mainstage Theatre at HCC/Ybor City. The award-winning Canadian
artist and her trio are presented by the Tampa Jazz Club, as part of the HCC
Visual & Performing Arts Series.
With a sound that combines her highly accomplished jazz background with pop,
classical, and soul influences, LAILA BIALI has garnered worldwide recognition for
her music, with performances ranging from Carnegie Hall to the North Sea Jazz
Festival. In fact, her Tampa appearance is among her North American dates that
fall between shows in Sweden earlier in April, and the Borneo Jazz Fest in
Malaysia, in May!
In addition to her own band, she has toured with Chris Botti and Suzanne Vega,
and recorded and performed with the iconic Sting, who said ‘She is an exciting and
unique talent, and I admire her greatly.’ (Among her 2017 projects is an
appearance on ‘The Banff Project,’ by USF’s Jack Wilkins, which was premiered at
the Tampa Jazz Club/USF concert in March, and will be presented in Canada later
in the year.)
Critical attention came early in LAILA BIALI’s career, when she was honored as
both Keyboardist and Composer of the Year, at the 2005 Canadian National Jazz
Awards. More recently, she was nominated for a JUNO Award for Best Jazz Vocal
Album in 2011, and her follow-up ‘Live in Concert’ cd was named among the ‘Best
Albums of 2013’ by Downbeat Magazine.
Don’t miss the first Bay Area appearance by THE LAILA BIALI TRIO, in the
beautiful Mainstage Theatre at HCC/Ybor City!
