Every Friday and Saturday throughout the sizzling summer, the coolest place to be is the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto where some of the most important instrumentalists on today’s jazz scene entertain in the charming intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.
Tonight, we feature JUNO-nominated and Galaxie Award-winning saxophonist SHIRANTHA BEDDAGE, hailed by critics as a fresh and powerful voice on the baritone saxophone. His newest CD, Identity was nominated for Traditional Jazz Album of the Year at the 2013 JUNO Awards, and also garnered him the 2013 Galaxie Rising Star Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. As a composer for film and television, his original compositions have been featured on the FX television series Fargo (2014) starring Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman. Beddage is the Head of Theory and Harmony at Toronto’s Humber College music program, and Vice Chair of Instrumental Jazz for MusicFest Canada. This evening’s all-star Trio also features piano tour de force ROBI BOTOS and JUNO-winning bassist MIKE DOWNES, performing for your pleasure in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
