Wallace and company will play such diverse tunes as Alone Together, The Way You Look Tonight, Benny Golson’s Stablematesand Joe Henderson’s Inner Urgewhen they visit Pat’s House of Jazz at the Osborne Bay Pub on Sunday March 17, all in their own unique style.
Joining Wallace will be Juno Award-winning saxophonist Jeff King, guitarist Graeme Stephen and bassist Artie Roth, all internationally lauded musicians.
Drummer and composer Wallace formed the band in 2015 after moving to Toronto from Edinburgh, Scotland, where he had been a central figure in the Scottish jazz community since 2002, performing with many of that nation’s top players.
During that period he toured Spain and Denmark with Scottish Celtic rock legends Wolfstone and became a member of jazz/hip-hop crossover group Live Sciences, recording the album Bohemian Raps.
Saxophonist King has performed all over Canada, the United States and internationally. Along with running his own band, he has performed and recorded with the likes of Paul Shaffer, Tony Bennett, Randy Brecker, Paul Anka, Lonnie Smith, Jeff Healey, Joey DeFrancesco, Hilario Duran, Wayne Newton, Doug Riley and pretty much everyone else in the Canadian jazz scene.
Toronto-born jazz bassist Rothhas been an active composer, bandleader, performer and educator in the national and international jazz communities, since his graduation from York University in 1992
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, guitarist Stephen leads and contributes to a multitude of musical projects in Scotland and overseas, playing a wide array of styles from free improvised jazz to Scottish folk.
