Details: Jordana Talsky’s debut album, Standard Deviation, which features a seamless mix of pop and jazz material, marks the arrival of a serious young talent in Canadian jazz. The vocalist/songwriter has been turning heads (and ears) on the Toronto scene for the past three years. Standard Deviation has a full ensemble sound that adds real depth to the material without ever taking the focus away from Jordana’s pure and expressive vocals and impeccable phrasing. Jordana has road-tested most of Standard Deviation’s material on the Toronto club circuit and she now headlines throughout Toronto’s vibrant jazz club scene. Jordana succinctly describes the style of the record as “jazzy takes on pop songs and poppier takes on jazz songs.“ Test it out for yourself at the singer’s second engagement at the ongoing Jazz at Oscars series. www.jordanatalsky.com
