Welcome back to a brand new season of the CBM jazz series. The series is now in its 5th season. Time has gone fast. Last year was a good one. We probably had the best program ever, and attendance has continued to be on the rise. This means that we did not have to increase the cover fee for the coming season. It will remain $15. However, in order to hold cover fees steady, we need to continue to increase our attendance numbers. So I keep saying what I do at every performance: If you like what you hear, come back next month and bring a friend.
Cliff Bungalow-Mission went through a difficult time this summer as large areas of the community were flooded. We are very fortunate, that the community centre itself was not touched by the flood, despite the fact, that it was in the middle of the flood zone. In Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre, we have the invaluable combination of a great performance space, and a supportive community association. Continued thanks to Bob and Jan.
I am getting many more project proposals each year, than the series can accommodate. As a result, scheduling a diversity of projects and musicians for this season’s program proved to be a bit more of a challenge than usual. Some evenings are project based, some are instrument based. The combination of these, however, will provide us with a wide variety of music styles. We are also repeating the two additional Saturday dance nights. The first one, on October 19, will be a funk/latin style night, the second one, on March 15, will be more traditional in nature. Due to its enormous success last year, we are bringing back Rob Young and the Big Beat Band for this. In balance, this year’s program should be at least as interesting and diverse as last year’s. I hope to see you all often this year, and please remember, always bring a friend.
The September 4 performance:
Come hear a night of swing and funky music in a jazz trio setting. The Tyler Hornby Trio will perform music from their latest cd release ‘Locus’ which has received rave reviews and regular rotation on campus radio stations across the country.
BIO Tyler started drumming at age 10, honed his artistry in high school big bands and experimental jazz combos, and has blossomed into one of the country’s most innovative and sought-after drummers.
After completing his B.Mus in Jazz Studies 98’ he continued to enhance his drumming skills attending the North Texas Drumset Camp, studying with legendary instructor Ed Soph. After that Tyler went on scholarship to the University of Colorado (Boulder) and completed his Masters Degree in Jazz Performance/Pedagogy 2006’. Since then Hornby has become a gifted composer by expanding his musical tastes, studying the craft with Grammy Award winning pianist Chip Stephens, and immersing himself in the work of other great players from all over the planet. His list of collaborators is wide and wealthy, including Bob Mintzer, Ingrid Jensen, Wycliffe Gordon, Frank Mantooth, Alain Caron, Randy Brecker, Eric Marienthal, Tom Harrell, Jiggs Whigham, Irvin Mayfield, James Carter, Brad Goode, Chip Stephens, Hugh Fraser, Tommy Banks, PJ Perry, Shelly Berg, Ralph Bowen, Maciek Grzywacz (with a 2007 Polish Music Award nomination for their collaboration), Maciej Sikala, Piotr Lemanczyk, Pat Bianchi, John Gunther, Ken Walker, Phil Dwyer, Mike Murley, David Braid, Joel Miller, Campbell Ryga, Jeff Johnston, Brad Turner, Victor Goines, Kirk MacDonald, Jens Lindemann, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.
Hornby has performed at festivals, clubs and concerts in North America, South America and Europe, and has appeared on more than 30 recordings. His first solo album, a critically acclaimed exploration of post bop released in 2005 called Shadows of a Brighter Day, was selected for a National Jazz Compilation called Dig Your Roots. In 2009, Tyler was nominated for the Galaxie Rising Star Award of Radio Canada & General Motors Grand Jazz Award at Festival International de Jazz de Montreal. His newest record, A Road to Remember was nominated for a 2011 WCMA for Best Jazz Recording of the Year and received a Downbeat Magazine review: “…Tyler Hornby is a fluid player with a light touch and a penchant for writing wistful mid-tempo songs”.
