Rebecca Hennessy Quintet @ CWBC Walter Hall University Of Toronto
Rebecca Hennessy Quintet is an engaging and fun jazz ensemble that features original music by trumpeter Rebecca Hennessy. This music is inspired by jazz, the tradition of New Orleans brass bands, blues and roots music. The other musicians in the ensemble include: Emily Ferrell on trombone, Tania Gill on piano, Lauren Falls on upright bass and Ethan Ardelli on drums. The musicians of this ensemble are world-class musicians and Juno-nominated, world touring bandleaders themselves. More importantly, these folks are all friends and collaborators who will use these songs as a jumping off point to a great adventure. If you’re interested in doing some pre-listening to some of the repertoire they will be playing check out Rebecca Hennessy’s Fog Brass Band album “Two Calls” as well as on Way North’s albums: “New Dreams, Old Stories”,“Fearless and Kind” and “Kings County”.
