Intaglio is the artistic process whereby an engraving is used to print an image. In the same way, accumulated experiences and influences over time create impressions on the heart and mind. The original tunes and unique arrangements of favourite songs on the newest CD release “Intaglios,” from Tricia Edwards, take inspiration from her formative years of training and performance as a classical pianist, the more recent years of exploring the traditions of jazz, and her current passion for learning about the world of latin music. 

“Intaglios” debuted on the Canadian Earshot Jazz charts at #3 for the week of March 5, 2018. We look forward to sharing this music with you for jazz night at Cliff Bungalow – Mission!
