Ottawa International Jazz Festival Improv Invitational picks

This is the second of a series of shows on the Ottawa International Jazz Festival’s Improv Invitational series that is particularly beefed up this year. Tonight we will focus on selection of international and Canadian artists: • Saxophonist Peter van Huffel, a Canadian firmly settled in Berlin plays Gorilla Mask • Vocalist Monica Akihary fuses world music to Free Jazz with her Dutch friends that include trombonist Wolter Wierbos • Dutch Tin Men’s experiments with telephone vocal menus. A music that could sound deceptively straight ahead if it wasn’t for all the tricks they throw in. They are famous, see • Craig Pedersen It’s a Free Country new CD release • Rob Frayne’s Dream band • Drummer Mike Reed’s exploration of the music of Chicago, old and avant-garde, proving that Jazz from the ‘60s is far from being dead. • Berlin’s clarinetist/saxophonist Silke Eberhard that creatively revisits the great masters Eric Dolphy or Ornette Coleman.
