Ottawa Jazz Composers

Ottawa Jazz composers are diverse, inventive and persistent. Tonight we will sample eight of their compositions and attempt to define their unique characteristics: . Steve Boudreau’s Raymond Guy, catchy multi layered near pop . Johannes Welschs Fire, sheets of sounds from a single piece of metal . Tim Bedner’s Umbra, an angular lyricism . Linsey Wellman’s Ephemera Track 4, a self-developmental composition . John Geggie’s Son of a Shoe, asymmetric rhythmical lyricism . Doug Martin’s Kafka was Here, deeply unresolved like a Kafka novel . Richard Page’s, Irke, Hard Bop on the move . Roddy Ellias’ Calm, the acoustic textured improvisations . Peter Hum Midway, writing elaborate harmonics Missed last week’s RWAC show featuring Swiss avant-garde Accordionist Hans Hassler? Get it from our archives yb this link to your web browser:
