Tenor saxophonist and jazz impresario Cory Weeds puts together an all-star multi-generational sextet to celebrate West Coast Jazz! Weeds will be joined by pianist Sharon Minemoto and award-winning trumpeter Brad Turner, seasoned veterans of the Vancouver Jazz scene. Rounding out the sextet is a trio of phenomenally talented youngsters: bassist John Lee has just released his debut CD as a leader called The Artist; vibraphonist Atley King, a product of Capilano University, is one of the country’s most promising up and coming musicians; and drummer Graham Villette from Vancouver Island is making more and more appearances here in Vancouver and it’s not surprising why.
This concert is co-presented by the West Vancouver Memorial Library and made possible thanks to a generous bequest in support of music at the Library from the estate of Robert Leslie Welsh, through the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation.
