BRAD TURNER / JOEL MILLER QUINTET
Time 8:00 pm
Join two of Canada's finest as they collaborate on a writing project that will result in a recording in the coming months.
Canadian Juno award winning saxophonist Joel Miller has spent most of his life happily ignoring convention. Be it Jazz, Latin, Classical or Pop, Miller fluidly crosses boundaries, fusing a tapestry of fragments into a new and unique sound. When we hear it though, the music is familiar, comfortable. Miller’s aesthetic is intricate and idiosyncratic, but the work, for lack of better words, sounds right.
Juno award-winning multi-instrumentalist/composer Brad Turner is one of Canada’s most prolific jazz artists. In addition to being one of the finest trumpet players of his generation, he is equally skilled as a pianist. This wonderful quartet will highlight his trumpet skills and his compositional talents.
With Miles Black piano, André Lachance bass, Bernie Arai drums.
