Bill Coon once quipped, “There’s the classical world and the jazz world, and I’m the marriage counselor.”  The April 27 concert audience will surely marvel at the artistry and harmonic inventions of this Juno nominated guitarist, one of Canada’s highly respected musicians and winner of the 2009 National Jazz Awards ‘Guitarist of the Year’.

Performing professionally for over thirty years, Coon has played with many significant jazz artists and has more than fifty recordings; big bands and orchestras worldwide have performed his arrangements. Coon is also an adjudicator and clinician at music festivals and workshops. He is on the faculty at Capilano University in North Vancouver, teaching composition, arranging, jazz history, small and large ensembles, and jazz guitar. Born in New Guinea, Rene Worst has been a professional bassist since 1971.  His virtuosic and supportive playing on both acoustic and electric basses has made him a Canadian treasure.  Worst is as gifted on fretless as he is on acoustic – a rarity in the industry.  He is a founding member of the fusion band “Skywalk” and has anchored and produced six recordings with them.  Also Canadian, Jennifer Scott is a singer and pianist specializing in jazz, blues and world music.  Scott is considered one of the more important jazz artists working in Canada and the United States today.  As well as performing, she arranges and writes jazz and pop tunes and has several CDs. Scott has appeared on many CBC recordings and has worked with many other musicians both live and in the studio.
