Multi-award winning Canadian jazz crooner extraordinaire Ori Dagan continues to hold court over his weekly livestream concert series through June with an all-new lineup of themed events!
The multi-talented artist kicks off the month on June 4 with an All-By-Request evening delivering a mixed array from his bag of musical tricks. Then, audiences are invited to celebrate Ori’s birthday on Thursday, June 11, followed by a cyber-style Pride with his Tribute to Judy Garland on June 18. Dagan will close out the month on June 25 by celebrating The Music of Cole Porter in It’s Delovely. All shows go live at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. EST via Ori Dagan’s Facebook page.
Dagan’s critically acclaimed releases S’Cat Got My Tongue (2009) and Less Than Three <3 (2012) established a daring musical adventurer on the global jazz landscape. Having won numerous accolades for his witty and inventive original songs — from Googleable (his ode to a search engine) to Clap on the 2 and the 4 (an anthem for the rhythmically challenged), it’s his release Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole (2017) and accompanying collection of imaginative and delightful videos — jazz music’s first ever visual album — that have created the largest bounty of awards for the singer yet.
Debuting at #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz Chart and hitting more than 100k views on YouTube within days of release, Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole delighted audiences with its flash of inspiration towards Cole’s notable works. The dynamic multi-media project was widely lauded for pushing artistic boundaries and leveraging the status quo; it has won tens of Canadian and International awards, and continues to receive top features at countless festivals around the world — including SXSW, the inaugural Public Diplomacy Week in Seoul, Korea, the TanJazz Festival in Tangier, Morocco, and 2019’s Bare Bones International Film & Music Festival.
