About the Artist(s)

Triology is a supergroup of three award winning Canadian jazz musicians – Jodi Proznick on bass, Miles Black on piano and Bill Coon on guitar.

They have joined forces to form one of Canada’s finest jazz trios. All three of the members have received numerous accolades over the years including JUNO nominations, National Jazz Awards, Galaxie Rising Star Awards and Western Canadian Music Awards and have shared the stage with jazz stars such as Lewis Nash, George Coleman, David Fathead Newman, Ed Thigpen, Clark Terry, Max Roach and Harry “Sweets” Edison.

For this special 2-night engagements they will be joined by tenor saxophone legend Scott Hamilton.  The group will go into the studio after these shows to make a record for The Cellar Music Group.

Scott Hamilton is a true living legend and one of the all time great American Tenor Saxophone players. His big, warm, golden saxophone tone and perfect sense of swing carries on the tradition of the classic jazz tenor masters in the style of Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins as well as Zoot Sims and Don Byas.

He still successfully bridges the gap between swing and bop with a fluency and elegance that not many players achieve. With his trademark of a relaxed, elegant, warm and deep but effortless sound, Hamilton puts his own stamp on his style. He has recorded with some of the best pianists in the business (Tommy Flanagan, Gene Harris, John Bunch, Norman Simmons), as well as having played with Benny Goodman and Rosemary Clooney. Scott became a Concord recording artist in 1977, the huge publicity that followed guaranteeing a heady round of clubs, festivals and recordings around the world. Since then he has recorded over 40 albums for Concord.
