Terra Hazelton is getting in touch with her jazz roots for an upcoming performance in Nanaimo to promote her latest album.

Hazelton is touring the West Coast with Canadian jazz guitarist Nathan Hiltz during their Down With Love Tour.

The duo performs at the Courts pub in Nanaimo Sunday (Oct. 21).

The performance will give her fans a sneak preview of songs from her latest album, That’s All.

“This album is about expressing who we are, not what we wish we were,” said Hazelton, in a press release. “The true artistic need is, these days, often over-shadowed by the desire for perfection and the technical advancements that contemporary recording can provide. It’s terrifying to release something so raw. But it’s real.”

That’s All, set for release this November, features classics including Ellington’s In My Solitude and the title track, That’s All by Alan Brandt and Bob Haymes.

It includes newer pieces such as Lure of The Little Voices, written by Jeff Gladstone with lyrics from Robert Service’s same titled poem.

That’s All “harkens back to an era of jazz recordings that were cut to wax live while the band was playing, no editing, no retakes and certainly no auto-tune,” said producer and bassist Jordan O’Connor, in a press release.

Tickets can be purchased for $6 in advance at Fascinating Rhythm or the Courts pub, or $8 at the door.
