Joe Lovano Quartet:
A massive force in jazz for four decades, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano cut his teeth in early gigs with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Chet Baker, Rashied Ali and Paul Motian before emerging as a leader in his own right.
Versatile and omnivorous in his collaborations, he’s worked with a Who’s Who of jazz stalwarts, including John Scofield, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, Bill Frisell, and Dave Douglas. “Expertly balancing heartfelt melodicism and cerebral harmonic improvisation” (AllMusic), Lovano is constantly creative, constantly exploring. With rising star pianist Lawrence Fields, and the in-demand New York-based rhythm section of Bulgarian bassist Peter Slavov, and Kosovo transplant Lamy Istrefi drums.
Matt Choboter Trio:
When acclaimed Vancouver trumpeter Brad Turner (Metalwood) was honoured with the Mayor’s Arts Award in 2014, he chose pianist/composer Matt Choboter as his Emerging Artist counterpart. For this concert, the mentor joins the rising star for adventurous, wide-ranging post-modern jazz. With Cole Birney-Stewart bass, Andrew Thomson drums.
