Peripheral Vision with the Joe Sorbara Sextet

May 7 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Peripheral Vision is excited to have the Joe Sorbara sextet opening on Tuesday May 7. Joe Sorbara's new sextet explores original music drawing on influences from the great composers of the Black American Creative Music tradition and features Rebecca Hennessy (trumpet), Ted Crosby (tenor saxophone and clarinet), Aline Homzy (violin), Tania Gill (piano), Michael Herring (bass), and Joe Sorbara (drums). Joe will also be the guest drummer subbing with Peripheral Vision!

Peripheral Vision is one of the most exciting and innovative jazz quartets on the international jazz scene, performing together for 15 years. Based in Toronto, Canada, the creative leaders of the group are long-time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring. They have assembled a synergistic musical unit designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy. Their distinctive musical voice bridges tradition and innovation, with deeply felt influences ranging from jazz, rock, classical, and improv, with a focus on dynamic group interaction.

Peripheral Vision is excited to have released their Canada Council for the Arts funded multi-media project, We’ve Got Nothing, featuring live videos filmed at the Tranzac, and an accompanying CD release.
