I present the next of my “Low Stress Jazz Trios” on Saturday April 7th. It features “guitar hero” Ted Quinlan and “superbassist” Paul Novotny! We’ll have a ball, jamming on favourite numbers from the jazz pantheon and eating authentic Ethiopian food at Hirut Cafe!

I return to Hirut Cafe on Thursday April 26th with The Barnes and Woldemichael Ethio-Jazz Quartet! Videos on YouTube, social media.

Other artists I’m performing with this month include new generation crooner Andrew Beg and original era Colin Hunter both at The Jazz Bistro in Toronto. Composer / reedman John MacMurchy and “Art of Breath” record and play live while Chanteuse Adi Braun presents from her new CD “Moderne Frau”.
