Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Marty Majorowicz Duo
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Marty Majorowicz, Trombone
Paul Richey, Piano
MARTY MAJOROWICZ – A native of Edmonton, Marty Majorowicz has established himself as an in-demand performer, educator, and bandleader in the local jazz scene. Marty also had contact with many of the modern greats in his two-year stint living in New York where he studied with Michael Mossman, Antonio Hart, Luis Bonilla, and Steve Davis. He has led the Yardbird Suite Jazz Orchestra, co-led the WCMA nominated group the Writers’ Guild, and recently recorded his latest CD featuring European superstar Florian Ross. Marty is considered one of Western Canada’s finest jazz trombonists.
PAUL RICHEY – While Paul Richey can more commonly be seen performing funk, soul, and afrobeat with his band, The Fusionauts, he also plays “normal” jazz on a “normal” piano sometimes. During these unprecedented “unprecedented times” times he has focused a bit too much on studying Rachmaninoff and is looking forward to finally playing some real Jazz with his bud, Marty.
In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.
Curated by Edmonton musician Stephanie Urquhart, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
