The jack hammer is back in the jazz room! Glenn Buhr’s decorated career in composition and piano performance has spanned genres from symphonic and film to the jazz quartet. His extensive discography features Thru the Wounded Sky, a gripping textural work that has become a signature for Glenn’s jazz style.
Glenn has brought together a truly distinctive new ensemble as the Ebony Tower Trio featuring Toronto’s own Rich Brown on the custom six-string, Brandon Valdivia at the kit, and the inimitable Marcie Rabe as a truly special guest on vocals.
“His melodies are wonderfully evocative, from poundingly percussive Jackhammer to hymn-like Steal Away, fully fleshed out with carefully voiced harmonies or even well-orchestrated accompanying lines. Buhr’s sense of composition and structure ultimately makes this an exceptional outing.” – The Globe and Mail
As a composer, music curator and producer, band leader, and improvisational pianist, Glenn has had an impact from Montreal to Winnipeg.
Programmatic in content and often Romantic in style, Glenn Buhr’s music has been inspired by such writers as Tolkien, Joyce, and Tagore, and has been influenced by such composers as Dukas, Ravel, Schoenberg, Penderecki, and Elliott Carter.
