Bruno Hubert Trio with Brad Turner
A native of Maniwaki Quebec Bruno started to play drums in his first rock band at the age of 14, playing rock music in local bars and in the town marching band. His plans to become a professional drummer were soon derailed when college requirements obliged him to study piano. With a deep sense of swing and beguiling melodic lines evocative of Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, and Bill Evans, he pilots medley-like journeys through jazz standards, soul, rock, and pop-influenced pieces. Hubert has recorded with artists as diverse as Denzil Sinclair and his long-time idol Gino Vannelli, and starred in a feature film, Bruno’s Blues, alongside many other stalwarts of the Vancouver scene. The film is available on iTunes.
Brad Turner’s phenomenal talents as a trumpeter, pianist, drummer and composer make him one of Canada’s most in-demand and highly esteemed musicians. As a leader, Brad has released seven albums, six as a trumpeter with his quartet, and one as a pianist with his trio. In addition to JUNOs for his work with the trio Metalwood, he has also won a National Jazz Award for Composer of the Year, Musician of the Year, Trumpeter of the Year, Producer of the Year, and the Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award, among many other honours. Brad is a member of the jazz studies faculty at Capilano University, and plays Cannonball trumpets.
