Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Spring, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists and leading vocalists on today’s jazz scene in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.
First-call pianist MARK KIESWETTER has performed alongside jazz greats including Zoot Sims, Jack Sheldon, and James Moody. For more than three years, he was the musical director for the legendary Jon Hendricks, working with him in developing the large vocal ensemble “Vocalstraâ”, and performing at prestigious events and venues including the International Association of Jazz Educators in New York and the Sorbonne in Paris.
He has played in the orchestras for multiple professional touring companies, performed on numerous CDs including Juno-nominated “The Beat Goes On” (Emilie-Claire Barlow) and “Bread and Buddha” (Harry Manx), acted as Musical Director on several recently released albums including “Stealing Genius” (Amy McConnell & William Sperandei), “I Could Laugh Out Loud” (Ilana Waldston), and “Everybody’s Here” (Whitney Ross-Barris), and in 2011 released his own duo recording “Green Edge Sky, Green Edge Sun” with Toronto bassist Ross MacIntyre.
This evening’s all-star MARK KIESWETTER TRIO also features jazz masters ROSS MacINTYRE on bass and KEVIN DEMPSEY on drums, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
