The Mike Field Quintet
Born and raised in Canada, jazz trumpeter, composer and vocalist Mike Field is known for his bright and energetic music. His works have earned him a series of prestigious awards, and he travels around the world performing his original compositions with local musicians at jazz festivals and clubs. Whether he's playing one of his standard-like instrumental jazz tunes or singing a silly world-music vocal piece, his music is a mix of fun, technical ability and cultural influences.
A recipient of the Toronto Jazz Festival's Special Projects Initiative award for 2016, AVATAAR's music marries classical Indian music, modern jazz, Brazilian lyricism, atmospheric textures and ambiance, Javanese gamelan, and contemporary improvisation. The resulting confluence is a mesmerizing blend of rhythmic hypnotism, sonic landscapes and soaring melody that marries ancient and modern musical sounds.
The Stringtones musical repertoire travels from Spain to Cuba, Brazil, to Argentina, to Jamaica, Spain, Italy, and back to North America. With a fiery touch of flamenco, gypsy jazz, the mesmerizing harmonies of bossa nova, and virtuoso improvisation, this acoustic duo from Nelson will surely move and surprise you.
