Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra MPTF Jazz Quintet Concerts: A Few of Our Favourite Things
February 22 at7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
This performance will showcase a few favourites picked by band members along with a couple of original tunes. Leader and trumpeter, Richard Gillis is joined by Neil Watson (alto sax) and Lauren Teterenko (tenor sax), along with two of Winnipeg’s finest rhythm players, Will Bonness (piano) and Gilles Fournier (bass).
Neil Watson’s favourites choices are Lennie’s Pennies (Lennie Tristano) and Arabia (Curtis Fuller), and Lauren has made an arrangement of Wayne Shorter’s Backstage Sally. Richard has chosen two compositions that he originally recorded with Icelandic guitarist Bjorn Thoroddsen: Denis is Inn and Querida, as well as a great arrangement of Triste, Stéphane Grappelli’s Minor Swing, and Miles’ three-horn arrangement of Freddie The Freeloader.
