about

The multi-Emmy & Juno-winning Canadian-born jazz/pianist composer is back with his first jazz CD as leader in over 12 years. It's a live solo piano set that includes brand new material originally written as his reaction to - and personal "tonic"against - the ascendancy of our current president, plus re-imaginings of some previous work (including a piece newly dedicated to the late, great Hamiet Bluiett).
