Alan Jones Canadian All Star Sextet
Drummer Alan Jones (Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler) leads a band of all-star players that will have you screaming for…more! Saxophonists Phil Dwyer (Hugh Fraser, Randy Brecker) and Seamus Blake (John Scofield, Dave Douglas) are two of the most prodigiously talented players on the continent. Jon Ballantyne (Joe Lovano, Billy Hart) is a Juno award-winning pianist with a modern sensibility. Ingrid Jensen “plays trumpet with all the brilliance and fire of a true virtuoso” (Marian McPartland). Tom Wakeling (Arturo Sandoval, Lee Konitz) anchors the band on bass. Get set for dynamic post-bop with sophisticated melodies and a wonderful sense of buoyant excitement and infectious swing!
