Join us March 22nd for FREE Jazz Night 8-11pm featuring the Willem Paynter Trio. This week Martin Davidson (tenor sax) & Mike Carroll (drums) accompany Willem in the exploratory sax trio format.
Pioneered by Sonny Rollins in 1957, the Sax Trio has been explored by many of jazz’s great figures – Joshua Redman, Mark Turner, Chris Potter, Melissa Aldana – to name a few.
Martin, Dave and Willem are some of Halifax’s most in-demand players and will have your foot tapping and your head bobbin’ with their music. Blues, Bebop, Broadway and a little hip hop for good measure.
WINE DEALS: These gems are $9/g tonight!
RED: Perrin Cairanne Peyre Blanche – a super (now Cru) southern Rhône blend from the famed brothers of Beaucastel;
WHITE: Blomidon Unoaked Chardonnay – a clean refreshing example of local Chardonnay from one of the early pioneers showing us that yes, vinifera WAS possible in NS!
