The October Trio has been nominated for the Julian Award of Excellence for Emerging Canadian Jazz Artist, by the west coast radio show, Jazz Spectrum. It would be really great (assuming of course that you like the band and our music) if you could take a second and vote for us.
Voting is easy. Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and write “I vote for the October Trio” in the body.
Voting ends on February 3rd at 9PM PST.
Jazz Spectrum air Wednesdays at 6 PM PST on CJSP 90.1 and on a podcast at www.cjsf.ca.

"Without Bjork’s dramatic vocal to draw the spotlight, the band opens a lot of space in the song, especially in the second half when the bass dances to higher and higher octaves, allowing the melody, delicately handled by Arntzen, to cascade into the stratosphere."
sorry everyone, the clinic and gig are canceled, hopefully we’ll reschedule for the new year.
Thank goodness for Peter Hum’s blog/twitter feed, and the job it does keeping the Canadian jazz scene present in peoples minds!
