Bernie Senensky

Toronto keyboardist Bernie Senensky has earned the reputation of being one of Canada's premier jazz artists. His playing has been featured internationally in many concerts & festivals, and he is recognized and respected as one of the foremost jazz pianists anywhere. He was the only Canadian guest on "Oscar Peterson Presents", a CTV National TV series. He has also been a guest on Marian McPartland's renowned Public Radio show "Piano Jazz". In addition, Senensky has been featured on CBC radio and TV, and many of his concerts have been recorded by CBC (Jazz Beat), CJRT-FM (The Jazz Scene, Sound Of Toronto Jazz), and Global-TV (Sounds Impressive) to name a few. He was twice voted "Best Acoustic Pianist" in the Jazz Report Awards, and he won the SOCAN award for "Best Jazz Composition" for his “BLUES FOR CLIFFORD”, a tribute to saxophonist Clifford Jordan.
