UNESCO Jazz Day includes Ottawa Local musicians

A couple of days ago, UNESCO decided to celebrate Jazz as an artifact of humanity. Here in Ottawa, this includes a pretty array of fine musicians. Thus, tonight we will focus on the various directions that our local musicians have taken. • The travelling music of saxophonist Doug Martin, Amsterdam • The hypnotic music of saxophonist Linsey Wellman, Ephemera • The rhythmically Balkanic music of drummer Mike Essoudry • The complex, multi-layered and humoristic music of trumpetist Craig Pedersen, Days Like Today • The lyrical music of bassist John Geggie, Geggie Project with Marilyn Crispell • The celebrative music of pianist Peter Hum, A Boy’s Journey • The ethnically loaded music of saxophonist Petr Cancura, People Music • The exploration of Jazz history of saxophonist Dean Pallen, Sunswept Sunday • The multi-phonics of saxophonist David Broscoe, Rake And last but not least, RWAC now uses a percussionist Jesse Stewart composition as its theme song.
