Outstanding saxophone and flute talent DAVID CALDWELL‘s luminous career is highlighted by years as a featured soloist with the Phil Nimmons Orchestra, Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass, The Spitfire Band, and Jim Galloway’s Wee Big Band. Born in Halifax, he studied at Berklee in Boston before relocating to Montreal where he worked as a soloist in the esteemed Vic Vogel and Denny Vaughan Orchestras.

Moving to Toronto in 1972, he performed in two TV specials starring the great Oscar Peterson, and recorded with Peterson on occasion. He traveled as a member of Canadian icon Anne Murray’s band throughout the height of her commercial success, appearing at Radio City Music Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the London Palladium, on “The Tonight Show”, and at major venues in Australia and New Zealand. For 15 years he occupied the first woodwind chair at Toronto’s prestigious O’Keefe Centre.

This evening’s all-star DAVE CALDWELL QUARTET features jazz masters DAVID CALDWELL on saxophone, MARK EISENMAN on piano, bassist STEVE WALLACE, and drummer DON VICKERY, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
