Event Description

Brad Turner:
Brad Turner is a Canadian jazz trumpeter and pianist. He has won three Juno Awards and six Canadian National Jazz Awards for categories including Jazz Trumpeter of the Year, Jazz Composer of the Year, and Musician of the Year.
Turner was one of the founding members of the jazz fusion group Metalwood which formed in 1997. The members played together until 2003, and had a reunion album released in 2016 entitled Twenty (referring to their 20th anniversary as a group). Later that year, the group went on tour to support the album, which lead them to winning a Juno Award as best group jazz album of the year.

Turner has also performed and recorded with such artists as Michael Brecker, Joe Lovano, Kenny Wheeler, John Scofield, Michael Moore, Renee Rosnes, Jimmy Greene, Ingrid Jensen, Dylan Van der Schyff, Mike Murley, Seamus Blake, Kenny Werner, and Ernie Watts.[2]

Turner currently lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is on faculty at Capilano University in North Vancouver, where he has been teaching for over two decades. He has also been the director of Capilano University's A band ensemble since the late 1990s.

Sean Drabitt:
Sean Drabitt left Victoria 24 years ago to study Jazz bass in Los Angeles with mentor John Clayton. The next decade he spent first in New Orleans, where he worked with all members of the Marsalis family, then in New York, working with the best young players on the modern jazz scene, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner, Eric Harland and Ari Honig among them. Specializing in a hard driving hard bop informed style of bass playing he returned to Victoria close to 15 years ago. Today he divides his time between various projects on both electric and acoustic bass. More recent career highlights have included a western Canadian tour with Terrell Stafford’s quintet in 2012 and a number of gigs with pianist George Colligan.
Sean’s played in over 40 countries and spent a year teaching bass at two colleges in Seoul, Korea.

Joe Poole:
Joe Poole earned his degree in Jazz Performance under the guidance of Oscar Peterson, gaining Jazz Report Magazine’s Best Post-Secondary Jazz Musician award along the way. He has performed in over 25 different countries, from Aruba to Spain, Denmark to St. Martin, and of course, numerous cities throughout North America. Joe has played with a respectable ensemble of musicians and bands, including the Verve recording artist Denzal Sinclaire, tenor sax legends Red Holloway, Lew Tabackin, Phil Dwyer, and Houston Person, baritone saxophone great Nick Brignola, alto sax players Richard Underhill and Bob Mover, Lorne Lofsky of the Oscar Peterson Quartet, Neil Swainson George Shearing, Woody Shaw, Don Thompson of the Jim Hall Trio, and Guido Basso of the Boss Brass.
