Three in one Night of Music
Date: January 19 Medium: Concert
Time: 8pm doors: 7:30 Tickets: TBA


Formed in 2002 by Vancouver-based experimental trumpeter JP Carter, the Aeroplane Trio uses a conventional acoustic jazz setting as a platform for their improvisations and compositions. Twisting and contorting their instruments, nothing is sacred in creating the trio's unique sound. This new collaboration with saxophonist Jon Bentley has set the group on an exciting new path. Carter and Bentley, along with bassist Russell Sholberg and drummer Skye Brooks, have found a common sensibility; they make music both delicate and combustable, strange and beautiful.


a moment in time, captured . . . Stop Time, led by drummer/composer Daniel Gaucher, strives to engage, captivate and communicate with imediacy to the listener. Bringing together the dynamic instrumental styles of four of the city's finest improvising musicians, this band serves as an output filter on musical musings ranging from indie rock and traditional jazz to ambient electronica and modern improvisation.


With a CD release around the corner as well as new compositions and experiments always in the works, this Vancouver based trio is looking at a bright future. Joining pianist/composer Cat Toren on the bandstand in drummer Dan Gaucher (Stop Time, October Trio) and bassist Russell Sholberg (Aeroplane Trio, the Family Stump). These three musicians create quite a dynamic; from gentle, passionate ballads to angular, dissonant improvizations. If you're interested in seeing Dan with his toy box, Russell with his alligator clips, and Cat with her crochet hooks (and toys stolen from dan on impulse) you won't want to miss this band.
