'Red' an Evocative and Stirring Album from Hamilton Jazz Queen Diana Panton

Thanks to a Juno win and a Hamilton Music Award nomination this year, Red, the latest magical CD (released through eOne Music) from Hamilton Jazz Lady, Diana Panton is certainly getting noticed.  With one of the best voices in the genre around behind the mic, that's not surprising.

Diana's voice is a truegem: sultry, sweet, evocative and stirring.  Her team is also amazing as they bring in classical, soul, blues and even a little Latin flavour for good measure.  No matter what they throw hwe way, the lady handles it with skill and vigor.

The main behind this incredible sound cohorts are Don Thompson (piano,), Reg Schwager (guitar), Phil Dwyer (sax), and Jim Vivian (bass),  Guest include Hammer Blues legend Harrison Kennedy (vocal), Moshe Hammer/Praise Lam (violins), Diane Leung (viola), Coenraad Bloemendal (cello), and Erica Goodman (harp).

CDs are available at many physical and online shop.  You can also download them using iTunes or
