Her art is her own, and she offers rare pleasures. She understands the song, not only as notes and syllables on paper, but also the heart-messages it sends us. She conveys tenderness, thoughtfulness, wit, and ardor: emotions and perceptions aimed right at us through her very human voice”

Reid’s Distillery presents In the Mood Duo

(EST, UTC-05) (EST, UTC-05)

Reid’s Distillery, 32 Logan Ave,, Toronto, ON M4M 2M8

Join In the Mood Duo as they perform the repertoire of Tony Bennett while you enjoy an expertly crafted cocktail and charcuterie. Reid’s Distillery is a family owned and operated craft gin distillery opened in 2019 in Toronto. 32 Logan Ave, Toronto, ON M4M 2M8 (416) 465-4444

The In the Mood Duo is touring a program of music that pays homage to one of the most distinctive voices of the century. They have performed for sold-out audiences in Vancouver, Victoria, and Calgary. The late, great Tony Bennett, one of the most masterful interpreters of the Great American Songbook, had an amazing knack for selecting songs with beautiful melodies and lyrics that tug at the heartstrings, reminding us of our humanity and capacity for love. In the Mood Duo will offer up vocal and instrumental renditions of such classics as I Left My Heart in San Francisco, Cheek to Cheek, The Good Life, Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, The Shadow of Your Smile, The Nearness of You, and many more from Tony Bennett’s more than 70 albums. Pianist Ray Gallon has been a mainstay on the NYC jazz scene for over 35 years. With two lauded albums out, Angela Verbrugge has toured her music to Japan, Germany, the UK and Luxembourg. Her work has been praised by reviews and features in JazzTimes, JazzWise, JAZZIZ, JazzLives, Couleurs Jazz France, Los Angeles Jazz Journal, Jersey Jazz, WholeNote and many others.

“…enchanting and witty vocalist/composer/lyricist Angela Verbrugge has already received numerous accolades for her diaphanous and romantic vocals. Verbrugge has created a vibrant presence internationally, performing at the world’s finest boîtes, concerts and festivals.” Whole Note Magazine

"Miss Verbrugge addresses each song with the breathtakingly, absolutely natural and unaffected purity of her voice, heard in every lovingly caressed phrase. She makes all of her chosen material sound magical – the lesser-known gems and the more familiar material." Raul da Gama, Toronto Music Report

“ In Gallon’s playing there is amazing melodic clarity and invention and intention.” London Jazz News
