Innovative and electrifying, Toronto jazz drummer Ernesto Cervini has energy to burn, whether radiating it from behind his kit or working on any number of musical and educational projects. The quartet features a cross-pollination of outstanding young and upcoming New York and Toronto musicians; the amazing Joel Frahm on Saxophones (NYC), Adrean Farrugia on Piano (Toronto) and Dan Loomis on Bass (NYC).
Their most recent album, Little Black Bird (Orange Grove Records, distributed by ANZIC Records) has been getting rave reviews on both sides of the border. It was recently nominated for album of the year in Downbeat Magazine’s 2011 Reader’s Poll
“Bold Canadian drummer Ernesto Cervini exemplifies ‘float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’…Cervini has a clever compositional style that finds perfect expression in the warm, roving lines of saxophonist Joel Frahm, Cervini’s well chosen foil…4 stars! ” Ken Micallef – Downbeat Magazine
- 1993 – Named “Composer of the Year” by Jazz Report Magazine
- 1991 – Juno Award for “Best Jazz Recording” (In Transition)
