Roddy Ellias Trio CD will be available for purchase at the concert for $15
Roddy’s music has been described as “exquisite” (Mark Miller, Canadian jazz critic and
author), “positively brilliant” (Bill McBernie, Planet Jazz), and “Nothing was more beautiful
than Ellias’ piece Too Far, which when it was done created in the crowd a silence that
spoke volumes before applause did ensue.” (Peter Hum, jazz musician, critic and blogger).
A musician and composer for over forty years, he has performed with a host of musicians
including Lee Konitz, Tom Harrell, Kenny Wheeler, Nat Addeley, Pepper Adams,
Slide Hampton, Red Norvo, Bud Freeman, Cleo Laine, Guido Basso, Claude Ranger,
Dr. Lonnie Smith and many more.
Roddy’s trio with Adrian Vedady and Thom Gossage, two of Canada’s most creative
and sought after musician’s (composers and leaders of their own projects as well) is a
wonderful marriage of three highly compatible musicians who love playing together.
