Terry Cade , “a true jazz vocalist”(Toronto Star), was born and raised in Toronto and made her lifetime commitment to music at the young age. Her extensive classical and jazz training began in her early teens and includes studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music, The Berklee School of Music, York University, and The Manhattan School of Music, as well as study with jazz vocalist Anne Marie Moss , Meredith D’Ambrosio and the late jazz great Fred Stone.
Cade’s most potent jazz influences are Betty Carter for her “reinvention “ of the song form , and the more traditional offerings of Shirley Horn. She is inspired by the improvisational genius of jazz pioneers Thelonious Monk and Bill Evan
In her first CD entitled “Sometimes I’m Happy”, Cade exhibits impeccable vocal skill combined with a vast emotional range in her arrangements. She dances with breezy confidence and humour throughout and evokes tears in the riveting and poignant ballad written for her father, “ “ I Wish I Could Have Known You Better”.
Cade’s rhythm section provide eloquent counterpoint to her instrument and her arrangements. On this recording she was joined by Dave Restivo (piano), Artie Roth (bass), John Obercian (drums), Hugh Marsh (violin) and Lou Marini (sax). The CD was produced by accomplished composer/arranger, Jonathan Goldsmith.
Cade’s growth and maturity as a musician are evidenced on her second CD “All n a Day’s Dream”. An album of largely original material, Cade shares a composer’s “voice” that is uniquely hers. Complex and layered, she exhibits an original approach to song writing in her unconventional harmonies, intricate melodies, and sensitive lyrics. She is joined on this recording by Gerard D’Angelo (piano), Ratzo Harris (bass), Victor Jones (drums) and Lou Marini (sax and flute).
Cade has performed extensively throughout Canada and the US and was featured performer at The Texaco New York Jazz Festival “Women in Jazz” series.
