Bright Moments: Tony Wilson’s Burn Down the Cornfield

@ 7:00pm

Tickets: $27 (available through the Coastal Jazz website)

Guitarist/composer Tony Wilson is one of the most important figures in Canadian Jazz, and has been a staple of the Vancouver/Pacific Northwest music community for decades, bringing an instantly-recognizable atmosphere and melodic sense to any music he is involved in creating. With his new project, Burn Down the Cornfield, Wilson layers intricate melodies and polyrhythms with a jazz trio of bass/drums/guitar that has been augmented by a string quartet and vocals: with Joshua Zubot and Meredith Bates violins, John Kastelic viola, Peggy Lee cello, James Meger bass, Dylan van der Schyff drums, and Patsy Klein vocals. This concert celebrates the release of their debut CD, This Way Through The Forest (2019).

Presented in partnership with Coastal Jazz as part of the Bright Moments series, which casts a spotlight on the best of what’s new in jazz.
