Joining the Victoria Jazz Orchestra this month is trumpet player and composer Professor Greg Bush of Vancouver Island University.
As a sideman, he's had the good fortune of playing in big bands and orchestras that have accompanied such artists as Big Miller, Paul Horn, Bobby Shew, Lee Konitz, Dizzy Gillespie, and Bob Brookmeyer. As the leader of his own big band and quintet Greg has performed his original compositions in jazz clubs, concert halls, and many jazz festivals across Canada.
He has also performed in various venues in Australia, the Fiji Islands, Germany, and at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Greg has released one CD entitled Cause and Effect, which features his original music. Tracks are available on CD Baby and iTunes and proceeds from purchases go to support VIU trumpet students.
Locally, Greg is the music director of the Georgia Straight Big Band and performs regularly with the Arrowsmith Big Band. In addition to some musical theatre pit work, Greg occasionally performs with his own small groups.
