In collaboration with the OFF Jazz Festival
One of Canada's finest ensembles joins forces with two jazz giants for a rousing evening of contemporary Big Band sounds!
The Joe Sullivan Big Band first burst onto the Canadian Jazz scene in 1998, counting among its 15 members some of Quebec's top jazz soloists. One of the province's most active Big Bands comes together in the intimacy of the Studio with special guest musicians from Toronto, guitarist Lorne LofskY, formerly of the Oscar Peterson trio, and premiere jazz saxophonist Kirk MacDonald, one of Canada's premiere jazz saxophonists. This concert will feature several new pieces featuring the two guests as well as music from the band's extensive repertoire.
