Friday, May 18 – Mark Segger Sextet

Canadian drummer, composer and bandleader Mark Segger heads a formidable sextet of improvisers who live and deliver innovative jazz.  Their broadly reviewed music is refreshing take on 20th century music and jazz spans the best of the avant guard and chamber jazz.

“one of Canada’s most noteworthy emerging voices in jazz and creative music” – Dennis Slater, FFWD Weekly

The brilliant lines of Mark’s work include the evocative My Dog Has Fleas and the seminal Soca You Play It.  Segger turns the three-horn front into nimble individual voices that play off each other, around each other and in unison.

“Segger himself isn’t an overbearing drummer, but he moves things along with tasteful stylings, paying as much attention to tone and timbre as he does tempo.”Something Else Reviews

The sextet features three seasoned veterans of the Canadian jazz scene and three formidable emerging artists:

  • Jim Lewis – trumpet
  • Chris Willes – saxophone
  • Heather Segger – trombone
  • Tania Gill – piano/melodica
  • Andrew Downing – bass
  • Mark Segger – drums
