Kessler Douglas, Solo Bass

Up-and-coming jazz bassist Kessler Douglas is an explorer, innovator, and storyteller. Fuelled by a deep well of creative energy and a love for musical dialogue, Douglas composes, interprets, and improvises in a variety of styles and settings. His sound draws from both his individual musicality and varied influences, which include Ray Brown, Sun Ra, Claude Debussy, and Alfa Mist. Kessler recently completed MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Music program and looks forward to attending Carleton University in Ottawa in the fall to begin his Masters. Kessler has played in venues and arts events across Edmonton and Alberta, including the Yardbird Suite, the Edmonton Jazz Festival, and the Flying Canoe Festival. His principal creative project, the Tonart Ensemble (previously known as the Kelso Pentagonal Group), explores the bounds of improvisation, combining soulful melodies and innovative new sounds. Kessler has worked extensively as a sideman, including with the MacEwan Jazz Combo and Big Band, the Cunningham Family Band, Baker Electrical, John Sweenie, and the Downlow Project.
