Oliver Gannon Quartet
Time 8:00 pm
“Fingers” as he is often referred to, is fresh off the release of his third record as a leader. The critically acclaimed “Easy Sailing” on Cellar Live spent 10 weeks on the Jazz Week Charts. Guitarist Oliver Gannon cites Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery as formative models, horn players as conceptual influences, and Art Blakey’s music as a favourite direction. His fluid swinging style is rooted in 50’s and 60’s bop. He is a generous leader allowing the band members lots of room to contribute. With Miles Black piano, Jodi Proznick bass, Blaine Wikjord drums.
