Thanks to the Ottawa Citizen for including us in their best bets for this weekend.
Here's a clip of last year's show where we first tried this combination of musicians.
Steve Boudreau is an Ottawa-based pianist who specializes in jazz and popular music. He currently teaches piano privately and as part of Carleton University's Music Performance program. He has taught private lessons for over 20 years and is a member of both the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association and the Jazz Educators Network (USA). In 2010 he received a Master of Music degree in jazz performance from the New England Conservatory in Boston. He has toured North America with multiple musical productions and has performed as both leader and sideman at various Canadian jazz festivals. His recently released trio album "Preludes: The Music of George Gershwin" has been getting radio play on Canadian jazz stations and a new quartet record of original music entitled "Opus 2" is now out, with guitarist Garry Elliott, bassist Adrian Vedady and drummer Camil Belisle.
