FROM NEW YORK, THE JOSHUA BRUNEAU SEXTET featuring STEVE DAVIS CD RELEASE
featuring JOSHUA BRUNEAU trumpet, STEVE DAVIS trombone, CORY WEEDS tenor sax, TONY FOSTER piano, ADAM THOMAS bass, JULIAN MACDONOUGH drums
Vancouver jazz fans will be in for a winter treat when the Joshua Bruneau Sextet hits the Pyatt Hall stage to celebrate the release of their debut release on Cellar Live, Bright Idea. Bruneau, is one of the best jazz trumpet talents to emerge in recent years. The New York-based trumpeter and flugelhorn player is a Hartt School of Music graduate who studied with jazz master Jackie McLean. Bruneau has recorded with Nat Reeves, Steve Davis, and Larry Willis, and toured extensively with trombone great Curtis Fuller. Bright Idea, recorded live at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City in March 2014, is a hard swinging session featuring the young trumpeter’s fluid lines and robust tone. We’ll be hearing much more from Bruneau in the near future.
It’s an added bonus that Steve Davis, one of the jazz world’s leading trombonists and a Hartt faculty member, will be on the gig. Davis, who played on Bright Idea, performed extensively at the Cellar Jazz Club and toured with Cory Weeds, who is also part of the sextet. Rounding out the ensemble are two of Vancouver’s finest pianist Miles Black and bassist Adam Thomas along with Bellingham-based Julian Macdonough, a fiery drummer.
