Summer Jazz Nights In Verdun/Len’s Tribute & Up North Jazz

Montreal Jazz Festival 2009
I had a good time at various jam sesions during the Montreal Jazz Festival. It was great to run into musicans I have not seen in some 20 odd years. Our playing has matured and it’s wonderful to hear that. I had the pleasure of catching  Bill Charlap and Branford Marsolas..both excellent shows.
RIP  Len Dobbin
I was able to honor the memory of Len Dobbin at his memorial tribute show at L’astral on August 9.  Dave Turner, Jim Hillman, Adam Over and I played a tune that was dedicated to Len by Pepper Adams.  The tune is called “Dobbin” and it’s a classic minor bebop. The  turnout was great and we were happy to honour him in this way.

New and in Year One : Mont-Tremblant Jazz Festival
Going up North this Sunday?  I also perform at Mont-Tremblant Jazz Festival  with FRANÇOIS RICHARD & the NOUVEL ORCHESTRA, at 19h30 – He is a flautist who is adventerous. If you in the region, stop by.  Our show is $25 but there are also some free shows in and about town.

Music @ St. Clement’s Jazz Series
I am getting ready to record some new material at my upcoming concert.(Sat, Aug 22 – 8 pm : 4322 Wellington Street) If the acoustics in the church work..we will release a new CD.
The theme for the concert series is “She Walks In Beauty” which is based on a Lord Byron poem. Roland Graham wrote the melody and each ensemble (there are 8 of them) will interpet the music.  I had fun re-harmonizing the melody. It’s very nice.   All the shows are Free, but donations are acepted and given to the musicans. Roland has done a great job in promoting music here in Verdun.
Enjoy the toasty weather while it lasts
