John Sweenie has spent the last decade establishing himself as one of Western Canada’s premier saxophonists and jazz composers. Best known as an improviser and small group leader, John has spent the last several months arranging a selection of his original works for jazz orchestra. Drawing inspiration from classic composers such as Gil Evans and Charles Mingus, the music for this program is unapologetically original and of his own voice. Join John and the YSJO for a great afternoon of music that’s heavy on improvisation and nuance, featuring some of the best jazz musicians Edmonton has to offer.
