7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
POSTPONED due to the return to AHS Step 1 restrictions.
John Sweenie – Saxophone
Paul Johnston – Upright Bass
Dave Laing – Drums
Homegrown talent John Sweenie has been bringing his exciting saxophone sound and compelling original compositions to stages across Western Canada for over a decade now, employing a balance of musical influences that ranges from Charlie Parker to Led Zeppelin. Equally at home playing the standard swinging repertoire of Black American Music, the advanced rhythmic and harmonic content of modern improvised music, or driving rock and groove based R&B; as an audience member you can be prepared for both tasteful melodies and virtuosic riffs from every performance.
On this engagement John’s group will be employing the chord-less ‘Strollin’ style of trio jazz often employed by the legendary Sonny Rollins.
