The concert will feature many original tunes comprising scintillating grooves, wistful moods and playful interaction!
Ottawa musicians Steve Boudreau on piano and guitarist Garry Elliott have enjoyed collaborating on their original music for many years. They recorded a CD of their tunes called Pre-Dawn Skies and continue to work on new ones regularly. They are extremely excited to join forces with two of Montreal’s finest jazz musicians, bassist Adrian Vedady and drummer Camil Belisle. Adrian has worked with Mark Copland, Roddy Ellias, Mike Rud and many others. Camil has enjoyed the drum chair with the award winning Lorraine Desmarais trio for 30 years.
“Garry Elliott and Steve Boudreau add new voices and viewpoints to their music”. They’re also expanding the sound with Vedady and Belisle. “I think it’s really neat for Steve and I to share our music with people from elsewhere, too, and to play it and see what their take is on it.” April 2016 Alayne MacGregor OttawaJazzScene.ca
