Jazz Night with Will Clements' Compass and William Chernoff

June 1, 2024 - 8-10:30pm

Doors: 7pm | Music: 8pm | Two sets w/ intermission

It's the second annual Jazz Night at the Bernie Legge Theatre, presented by the Vagabond Players and Chernoff Music!


Described by CBC Music as "a fantastic and easy voice", vocalist Will Clements presents the music of his 2023 album, COMPASS. The album explores the themes of love through a queer lens; having resided in Montreal, Paraguay, and Vancouver, Clements brings influences from these cities into a new collection of compositions and arrangements, ranging from traditional swing music to South American-inspired sounds.

Bassist William Chernoff plays the opening set with his jazz trio, having released his debut album, Aim to Stay ("refreshingly accessible music” - All About Jazz), in 2020 and his sophomore album Maybe Eventually ("swing and melodicism [are] at Chernoff's artistic core" - Chris Wong) in 2022.

Both Clements and Chernoff grew up in New Westminster and were featured at the 2023 Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
