Bassist, Paul Rushka will be playing a tribute to the late Kenny Wheeler (14 January 1930 18 September 2014), a Canadian jazz musician and composer.Bassist and composer Paul Rushka will be joining us for our April concert to present an evening of music inspired by and dedicated to the late trumpeter Kenny Wheeler. Joining him will be guitarist Tristan Paxton and saxophonist Jon Bentley. Rushka has recently returned to his native Vancouver after spending six years in Montréal, where in addition to being an active member of the Montréal jazz scene, he also completed a doctorate at McGill University that focussed on the music of Wheeler. It promises to be a fun evening of lyrical, swinging and colourful compositions including old favourites and originals.
