SymphRONica is all about the collaborations between Ron Davis and many great musicians, in Toronto and beyond. One of those musicians is the multi-talented, multi-faceted Portuguese-Canadian Louis Simão. Bassist, guitarist, accordeonist, composer, arranger, vocalist - it seems as though there's nothing Louis cannot do. And he does them all with profound musicality.
Louis has been working with SymphRONica for several years. This includes stints on bass, contributions as an arranger, and one stellar contribution as a composer/arranger with his gorgeous tune A Luz (da Partida), which appears on the 2019 release SymphRONica UpfRONt (see video here: https://youtu.be/Al2Wg1V2ass).
This show is a celebration of SymphRONica's work with Louis, featuring his playing and arrangements.
Come hear the energy and beauty of the music via SymphRONica's rewiring of jazz, in the words of what one U.K. reviewer "jazz like you’ve never heard it before".
