Please allow me to introduce you to a unique musical project – Baritone Madness – a collaboration of three of Western Canada’s top baritone saxophonists. Playing off the Sonny Rollins title for the feature album for the Tenor, Baritone Madness features the deep, mellow tones played by expert hands. The three lead voices in this exciting ensemble are well known musicians with decades of experience in Calgary, each is known for their unique voice on the saxophone. The mixture of Pat Belliveau’s soulful playing is inspired by his jazz and blues roots, Gareth Bane’s hard hitting style from his hard bop and groove roots and Keith O’Rourke’s thoughtful playing from bebop and contemporary jazz influences, showcases the variety of approaches of the Baritone Saxophone.
This event is part of the Works With Jazz series, a collaboration brought to you in part by TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival
