Pianist and composer Kate Wyatt has been praised as having “musical ideas and a style of playing and writing that is on par with the current jazz piano elite: Mehldau, Yaron Herman, Shai Maestro, Fred Hersch.”, and has been hailed as “one of the top artists of Montreal, Quebec, or even Canadian jazz.” (Cardin/Brunet, panm360.com). Her recent debut album “Artifact” was released to overwhelmingly excellent critical reviews, and was featured on “Best Jazz of 2022” lists from Canada, the US and Europe.
For this very special evening of music Kate invites multiple Juno award-winning Toronto-based saxophonist and composer Kelly Jefferson to join her in performing a selection of original compositions and music from the Great American Songbook.
“[Kelly Jefferson’s] muscular playing, eloquence and range of emotion, and versatility
justify his popularity. — Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen
