MUSIC: While sipping the many great wines, enjoy the sounds of top contemporary jazz
act Four80East. This acclaimed group is the brainchild of producers Rob DeBoer and
Tony Grace. Their first single, “Eastside”, broke through in 1997 in the US to become
the 7th most-played track on Contemporary Jazz radio that year. Their sound lies at the
forefront of what has been dubbed Nu Jazz – taking the best of contemporary jazz and
pop styles and aligning them to produce an improvisational dance-infused sound. The
Toronto-based group draws from a variety of sources to make their music, including
found sounds, field recordings and sound effects alongside their finely crafted studio
recordings. Click here to check out their music.
