Max Zipursky (L), Myles Bigelow (M)

On Thursday December 16th I attended an amazing jazz concert, it was the Myles Bigelow Trio CD Release Party at the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver. Jazz musician Myles Below performs more than 80 shows a year and has released his second CD. This album features “one of the city’s hottest new players” jazz pianist Max Zipursky and the rare Italian Fazioli piano. Guests mingled with glasses of red and white in hand, this party was packed, probably the busiest the lounge has ever been.

In between sets Sam Zupursky also known as DJ Zeida was spinning some jazzy tunes to keep the party flowing.
