John Sweenie Group

A perpetual student of music and the saxophone, John Sweenie is one of Western Canada’s fastest rising stars of the saxophone. Residing in his hometown of Edmonton, John has been bringing his breathtaking technique and fearless improvisation to stages around Alberta for the better part of the last decade. The 4TET Project, founded in December of 2014, blends traditional acoustic quartet sounds with rhythms and harmonies from funk, hip-hop, and rock music. With influences ranging from Joe Henderson and Charles Mingus, to Radiohead and The Wu Tang Clan. Aggressive and introspective at the same time, this is not your grandfather’s jazz quartet.
