Peripheral Vision is one of the most exciting and innovative jazz quartets on the international jazz scene, performing together for over 10 years. Based in Toronto, Canada, the creative leaders of the group are long time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring.  They have assembled a synergistic musical unit designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy. Their distinctive musical voice bridges tradition and innovation, with deeply felt influences ranging from jazz, rock, classical, and improv, with a focus on dynamic group interaction. Following up on their JUNO nomination, Peripheral Vision is excited to be touring in support of their fifth CD release, the monumental double album, Irrational Revelation and Mutual Humiliation

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
