The Hutchinson Andrew Trio (HAT), is a unique voice on the Canadian jazz scene. Over the past 9 years, this acoustic piano-based trio has been bringing their own sound to the Canadian jazz landscape. The Trio is comprised of CBC Galaxie Rising Star pianist Chris Andrew, three-time Western Canadian Award-nominated bassist Kodi Hutchinson, and Downbeat Award-winning drummer Karl Schwonik. The trio is the winner of the 2013 TD Grand Jazz Award from the Montréal International Jazz Festival.
HAT’s music can be categorized as contemporary acoustic jazz. They bring a unique Prairie perspective to their music, mixing elements such as contemporary swing, latin, odd-meter and acoustic groove. Their music is representative of where they come from; the serenity and beauty of the Prairies and Rocky Mountains, alongside the excitement of the vibrant and growing young cities of the Canadian West. Their most recent album ‘Prairie Modern’ has been nominated for a 2013 Western Canadian Music Award – for Outstanding Jazz Recording of the Year, the third nomination for the band. It was also featured in Downbeat Magazine’s November 2013 issue and was a Downbeat Editor’s Pick for July 2013.
HAT will be joined by rising international sax star and former Calgarian Curtis MacDonald. The show will be a unique mixture of compositions from the HAT and Curtis MacDonald making for a unique night of world class original jazz!
