"An Auditory Feast" - Review of Kim Kaskiw Sextet 

The Friday night jazz presentation at the Bayou Jazz and Blues Club (Ottawa) featured the vocal stylings of Kim Kaskiw. With an accomplished quartet sharing the stage, we were rewarded with a presentation both dynamic and polished.

Kaskiw vocals were strong and expressive. There were warm melancholy tones on Autumn Leaves and inventive scat improvisations throughout the set, which included an entertaining selection of popular numbers including Route 66 and Ain't Misbehavin'.

It was an auditory feast from the well formulated percussion language of Don Johnson, J.P. Allain's intricate keyboard, versatile bass of the irresistible Norm Glaude and Mike Mullin's saxophone.

It was a memorable evening of dynamic musicality, exceptional rhythm, melody and texture. Kudos on a great performance.
