Friday, Mar 15 – Andrew McAnsh Quintet

Andrew takes the lead of a broadly engaging quintet that features Toronto’s most exciting new talent.  Back by popular demand, Andrew’s bold trumpet lines are testament to his dedication as a composer, performer and arranger.  From forays into jazz, classical, funk, Latin, world, and folk music, his ensemble promises diversity and a fresh attack. His original writing is a beautiful balance of simple yet complex, sparse but melodic.

“This rising young trumpet player grows by leaps and bounds every time I hear him. This group delivers it all!” – Larry Larson

Andrew McAnsh has played in top studio ensembles under the direction of Pat Labarbera, Denny Christianson, Brian O’Kane and Al Kay. Andrew has performed with world class musicians Chris Potter, Dave Holland, Terence Blanchard, and the Labarbera brothers.
