MARK KELSO JAZZ TRIO
January 25 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm EST$15
Although the Mark Kelso Jazz trio is a relatively newly formed group with some very seasoned professionals, the history of these 3 players demonstrates some very serious musicianship and creative energy when they play together. Besides being their respective department heads in the prestigious Humber College music program, they are all multiple Juno winners and nominees. (Bassist Mike Downes has 1 Juno as a leader and 5 as a sideman, drummer/vocalist Mark Kelso has 4 Junos as a sideman and 1 nomination as a leader, pianist Brian Dickinson has 1 Juno as a leader and 4 as a sideman). Their bios also read like a who’s who of modern music! As a trio, they bring their years of experience together to form this formidable contemporary modern Jazz outfit. Whether it be instrumental classic Jazz standards, Jazz infused Pop material or vocal standards, this trio works like one tightly knit unit when they play together. Clearly their years of working & playing together at Humber, for the last 13 years, has laid the template for this fresh, exciting, creative and interactive musical experience that we are sure you will enjoy!
