The Sandro Dominelli Trio Plus 1 is coming together for the first time to bring some classic standard jazz music to the Yardbird Suite.
Sandro Dominelli is one of Canada’s most creative, talented and tasteful drummers. Through his continuing success as a much sought-after composer, bandleader, session player, and producer, he has proven to be an established luminary in the Canadian music scene.
Sandro’s first recording as a band leader “Café Varze Jazz” went on to receive top honours at the Western Canadian Music Awards as Outstanding Jazz Recording of the Year and was also nominated in 2004 for a JUNO in the ‘Best Traditional Jazz Album of the Year’ category. His follow-up album “Meet Me in the Alley” brought him more success including a Canadian Music Week Award for ‘Favorite Jazz Artist of the Year’. Dominelli released “The Alvo Sessions” in 2010 featuring Chris Tarry and Rez Abbasi for which he won another Western Canadian Music Award. In 2018, the same trio released a follow-up recording entitled “Here and Now.”
PJ Perry is an acknowledged national treasure, one of the greatest Canadian saxophonists of all time. He has shared the stage with countless jazz greats such as Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Shaw, Michel Legrand, Pepper Adams, Kenny Wheeler, Tom Harrell, Rob McConnell, Slide Hampton, Fraser McPherson, Tommy Banks, Joe LaBarbera, Clarence “Big” Miller, and many more talented artists, too numerous to list here. PJ is a JUNO winner and was awarded the Order of Canada in 2016.
Guitarist Corey Christiansen is a recording artist, writer, educator and performer who has played and taught in literally every type of situation around the globe for the last decade. He has released several albums under his own name. Jazzwise reviewer Mike Flynn notes that “…Christiansen is well versed in the guitar’s sonic heritage and his judicious sense of phrasing finds him light-fingered even on the densest of changes and positively euphoric on his ballad work.”
After studies in New York in the 1980s with Richie Beirach, Kenny Barron and Fred Hersch, pianist/organist Jeff Jenkins worked with many American jazz legends including Phil Woods, Freddie Hubbard, David Fathead Newman, Eddie Harris, Richie Cole, Bobby Hutcherson, Curtis Fuller, Benny Golson, John Abercrombie, and Clark Terry. He also leads his own organ group called The Organization.
