New Vibes returns to the Jazz Room in the Waterloo Region. The quartet has become a quintet with the addition of Jerzy Kaplanek, violin. Jerzy is a well known member of the internationally renowned Penderecki String Quartet and he brings sensitivity and virtuosity to his interpretations of jazz standards.
New Vibes plays jazz with a polished sound and fluid improvisation as on Sugar and St. Thomas from their debut CD, Jazz at the Gallery. The combination of vibes and violin is unique, and their two percussionists provide an extensive range of rhythmic expression. More information at: http://www.kwjazzroom.com/
