Earshot: October Trio w/ Brad Turner

Presented by Earshot Jazz Festival.

Vancouver's October Trio — Evan Arntzen (sax), Josh Cole (bass), and Dan Gaucher (drums) — have been hailed as "one of the reasons why jazz is in such good hands these days" by CBC critic Paul Grant, who adds that "their taste is omnivorous, from Coltrane and Coleman to punk, hip-hop, and bluegrass." Also based in Vancouver, Brad Turner is a trumpeter, pianist, drummer and composer who has won four of Jazz Report magazine's National Jazz Awards, including trumpeter of the year, composer of the year (twice), and musician of the year.
