Kim Zombik and Kate Wyatt at Resonance today

This Saturday January 25th at 4:30 PM Resonance Cafe’s Lyrical series presents original work by two members of the Kim Zombik Quartet, jazz singer Kim Zombik and longtime collaborator Kate Wyatt

Described as “being a musical jewel”, Kim Zombik is a versatile singer of jazz standards, the blues, and funk music. She has shared the stage and performed with a variety of great musical legends. From Jimmy Cliff to Cecil McBee, from the New World Japan Philharmonic Orchestra to Olu Dara, from Eric Alexander to the Wailers, from Grady Tate to Yosuke Yamashita, from Maceo Parker to William Parker, and from Igor Butman to Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers, Kim has sung and swung with verve and grace.

Kim delivers songs with warmth, power and experience. Her vocal style has been called “warm as hot chocolate”, “beautiful”. “natural”.

Kate Wyatt graduated from the Jazz Performance program at McGill, and has spent the past 15 years as a working musician in Montreal. Kate has recorded as a leader and “sideman” on various jazz recordings, pop projects and a couple of times for film and tv. Her passion is for improvisation, and she strives for a high level of sensitivity and interaction in her performances. Kate has been lucky enough to work with most of the top jazz musicians of the city, and currently leads her own quartet, as well as being part of the Adrian Vedady quartet, and the Kim Zombik quartet.

The Lyrical series is curated in collaboration with Montreal poet/performer Ian Ferrier, whose own performance work often mixes words, music and dancers. So expect a wide range of material over the course of the series. There is no strict admission price. If you like the show, a contribution of $5 – $7 would be much appreciated and would help us continue to present new work each week.

Resonance Café is located at 5175a ave. du Parc, Montreal. For more information, check out the Resonance Café web-site
