Time 8:00 pm
This exciting new group joins fantastic Vancouver jazz stalwarts Kevin Elaschuk, Bill Coon and Steve Holy with one of Canada’s greatest saxophonists, Victoria’s Roy Styffe! Elaschuk and Styffe have played together off and on for over 30 years, both in Toronto and in Vancouver. Styffe’s beautiful playing is influenced by Lester Young, Lee Konitz, Charlie Parker, Ornette Coleman, Paul Desmond and Steve Lacy. The musicians in this group share a similar musical sensibility. Expect thoughtful, interactive, sometimes spacious and sometimes very exciting, swinging music! Their repertoire consists of an array of beautiful standards and original tunes from the members. Kevin Elaschuk on trumpet, Roy Styffe on alto saxophone, Bill Coon on guitar and Steve Holy on double bass.
