I’ve got a couple of upcoming shows with my trio – with Ben Dwyer and Hans Verhoeven – that I’m looking forward to. On Saturday, March 3 we will be at Frankie’s Jazz Club in Vancouver, and joining us will be special guest Christine Jensen. Christine has been hitting a lot of home runs (for some reason jazz musicians love baseball metaphors) the last few years, gaining much-deserved recognition as a saxophonist, composer-arranger, educator, and bandleader. She has won a couple of Junos recently, is up for another this year, and also topped the Downbeat Critics Poll, in two categories! She is a great friend and an important part of my PDAMCA music camps over the years. This should be a great night.
One day later, on March 4, the trio will be at the Lighthouse Bistro in Nanaimo as part of the ongoing concert series curated by Luis Poretta.
Here’s a little preview of the trio.
