THE WINNIPEG JAZZ COLLECTIVE
The Winnipeg Jazz Collective features ten of Winnipeg’s best emerging young jazz musicians dedicated to performing music that is contemporary, creative, and Canadian. A mix of jazz program graduates from Brandon University and the University of Manitoba, the ensemble features Kyle Wedlake, Derek Frykas, and Sean Irvine on saxophones; Andrew Littleford and Matt Walden on trumpet; Joel Green and Bill Green on trombone; Jeff Presslaff on piano; Julian Bradford on bass; and Graydon Cramer on drums. The Winnipeg Jazz Collective has the presence of a big band with the flexibility of a small group, featuring contemporary, swinging arrangements along with impressive soloing. Whether playing original pieces composed and arranged by members of the group, or covering Canadians composers such as Rob McConnell, Daniel Jamieson, and Andy Ballentyne, the Winnipeg Jazz Collective is known for their top notch improvisation and music you won’t hear anywhere else.
