Read more through the link in our bio.

Craig has never been one to sit still for long.  His music ranges from genre defining electronic jazz to post-bebop hard swinging quintets, sextets and, contemplative through composed chamber jazz that explore wind instruments to their fullest.  Craig has always explored the possibilities of sound and has been hard to label, as he is continually unafraid to seek the ‘unknown’. 

During this life of sonic exploration, a constant has always been present.  Good people, good music, and a great sound has been the standard that Craig’s projects all contain. With this latest offering we get a striped down, bare, melodic ensemble that brings us back to his musical roots.

Hailed as one of the most prodigious guitarists of his generation and the “highest category of improvising musicians" (New Yorker), Julian Lage has spent more than a decade searching through the myriad strains of American musical history via impeccable technique, free association, and a spirit of infinite possibility. His music weds incisive, expressive songwriting with the profound interplay Lage has honed over the past few years with his deft trio featuring bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Dave King.

Two prominent Edmonton based jazz brothers, Don Berner @don.berner and Doug Berner @dougberner recreate some of the most famous arrangements the Adderley Brothers had in their repertoire and invoke some of the fiery energy that the Adderleys brought to the stage as "The Berner Brothers Play the Music of the Adderley Brothers".
