Tristar Mercedes and the Catbird Jazz Society Present the William Carn Quintet

On Sunday, October 28, 2007 at 2:00 p.m., the Catbird Jazz Society is presenting a concert by the William Carn Quintet at the Brunton Auditorium at Mount Allison University in Sackville.

“A top notch improviser and a modern, thoughtful composer"
--Terry Promane, Director of Jazz Studies, University of Toronto

Trombonist William Carn has garnered many such accolades for his musical prowess and unique voicing on the trombone. He has shared the stage with the kind of musicians that critics and publicists love to cite, notably Carla Bley, Randy Brecker, Andrew Downing, Hilario Durn, Phil Dwyer, Rob McConnell, Mike Murley, Bernie Senensky, Steve Swallow, Don Thompson, and Kenny Wheeler. Carns own debut album release was nominated for a Juno Award, and he has received several National Jazz Award nominations for Best Trombonist.

The William Carn Quintet includes five of the most exciting musicians in the Canadian jazz scene today, each of whom brings a wealth of experience to the modern jazz landscape. They include Carn himself, saxophonist Kelly Jefferson, pianist David Braid, bassist Kieran Overs, and percussionist Anthony Michelli. From the swinging and swaggering to the lyrical and introspective, the WCQ always brings sensitivity to its performances. The group is touring Canada in support of its second release, Lessons Learned. This is a very personal album, with each of the nine original compositions by Carn having been inspired by a particular experience or situation.

Admission is $15, with a special price of $7 for students. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Cackling Goose, in Sackville. For further information, contact Berkeley Fleming at 536-2411 or [email protected]
