Chase away winter with some silky jazz at the March Vespers.

The Jon Miller Quartet has been making waves on the BC jazz scene in 2015 and 2016 both for its engaging live performances and for the depth and variety of its original compositions. The group's new CD “3 Days in Winter” (May 2015) was in the top 10 on Earshot Jazz charts for programming across Canada for 19 weeks. And has been played on CBC Vancouver's Jazz programme “Hot Air.” In it the Quartet mines a predominantly acoustic vein of instrumental jazz while incorporating influences including blues, fusion and other forms of improvised music. Covering a wide range of moods from meditative and introspective to raucous and freewheeling, the group plays primarily original material along with classic jazz repertoire by such composers as Ornette Coleman and Roland Kirk.

Listener's comments:
"A little bluesy, a little funky, just how we like it."
"Great mood. Great sound quality. Well done!"

The band is led by McGill University graduate Jon Miller on drums. Currently from Victoria Jon lived in the US and Europe in the 1990's, where he performed with many renowned artists. His quartet includes much-respected musicians in the Victoria Jazz community: guitarist Rob Cheramy, bassists James Young and saxophonist Monik Nordine.

Spirited Jazz, is the collaboration between jazz musician Gary Theal and Rev. Shana Lynngood (who has been known to add her vocals to services.) Spirited Jazz, weaves inspirational words from the music performed
