Friday Drive
Friday June 10th, 2022 with Trevor Walker

Happy Friday Drivers! I’ve got what I believe to be a decent pull of goodies to keep you entertained for a couple of hours. You can expect the usual ride with a slightly different route. Starting off in a downtempo mode and taking it up in hour two depending on how the songs prefer to be played. Thank you for being here and I hope you can stick it out until the bitter end! Thank you for taking the time and hope you enjoy the trip. Extra curriculars mentioned during the broadcast. Saturday: Birdman Record Popup @Dave’s Drum Shop 270 Catherine St, | 10h-16h Multiple vendors killer wax!

Alex Moxon Quartet Album Release @ NAC Fourth Stage | 20h30 Event: Tickets: Ottawa guitarist Alex Moxon has been a familiar face in the Ottawa jazz scene for over a decade now. He has spent this time refining his voice as an improviser and composer while performing with a who's who of local and national talent. His June 11th concert at the NAC’s Fourth Stage will see the culmination of these efforts as he celebrates the in-person launch of his debut album as a leader, "Alex Moxon Quartet," which has already received international radio airplay and stellar reviews. The quartet features: Alex Moxon - guitar Steve Boudreau - piano John Geggie – bass Michel Delage - drums On Moxon's first record, Peter Hum of The Ottawa Citizen says "[Moxon] blends shards of the blues, modal motifs and flashes of guitar wizardry." Says Raul De Gama of The Whole Note, "Moxon is a shining example of what true musicality means." "Overall, Alex Moxon Quartet delivers an experience that uplifts and excites listeners as it leads them along a path of varying emotional landscapes... Let it be an antidote for gloom and despair, and a reminder that the future will be a wonderful place," says James Hale of Downbeat.
