Artists-in-Residence – Collaboration 4

TD Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival

Saturday February 9 @ 10:30pm, La Nouvelle Scène Studio B $25 + HST and fees


Jerry Granelli - drums/percussion
Petr Cancura - saxophone
Michael Herring - bass

The fourth collaboration will feature the legendary Halifax-based drummer Jerry Granelli, Ottawa saxophonist Petr Cancura and Toronto bassist Michael Herring. The sax-bass-drums is a classic sound - it is both powerful and highly malleable. Jerry, who has played and recorded with everyone from Charlie Haden to Vince Gauraldi and Bill Frisell, has an unrivalled energy and creativity. Michael Herring, co-leader of JUNO nominated Peripheral Vision is one of Toronto’s finest bassists. The group will be rounded out by Ottawa’s Petr Cancura, a roots-inspired saxophonist, Ottawa Jazz Festival Program Manager and musical director/arranger of the NAC Crossroads series.
