JILLIAN LEBECK / ADAM THOMAS
You don't hear jazz duets very often… not like this! Jillian Lebeck and Adam Thomas are two of Vancouver's finest instrumentalists and singers; their skill and over 15 years of friendship makes for some of the finest duet singing that can be enjoyed today. They bring fresh life into traditional jazz standards as well as jazz flavour to some of today's greatest songs by composers such as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Jesse Harris and many more.
