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
