For 20 years, the Joe Sullivan Big Band has been a major presence on the Canadian jazz scene. Sullivan – a trumpet player, composer, arranger, bandleader and university professor – finds inspiration in his Franco-Ontarian roots. The group’s growing list of accomplishments includes numerous concert appearances, radio broadcasts and three critically acclaimed CD recordings. The band performs from a large and varied repertoire of contemporary jazz compositions, principally by Sullivan and Jean Fréchette.
