Saturday, April 12: John Geggie and special guests at the NAC Fourth Stage
For a dozen years, jazz bassist John Geggie has brought superb jazz players from Canada and the world to play together in new combinations at the NAC Fourth Stage. Saturday's concert may be the last, but he's got a great lineup with many Juno-award-winning Canadian jazz musicians. Saxophonists Christine Jensen (2014 Juno) and Joel Miller (2013 Juno), and pianist David Braid (2012 Juno) are all well-known as ground-breaking composers as well as instrumentalists. And when you add in drummer Ted Warren and trumpeter Jim Lewis, who have played in many memorable concerts here, it's going to be an unrepeatable night.
