Watch the Jeff Johnston Trio Live at the LSPU Hall
Jeff Johnston - piano Jim Vivian - bass Mike Billard - drums
This celebrated trio, originating from Newfoundland and now based in central Canada, has been together for 30 years and have recently released their fifth studio album recorded at Montreal’s prestigious Pierre Marchand studio. Known for their uncanny sense of interplay and dynamic diversity, the trio has performed throughout North America and Europe and have recorded with such jazz legends as Kenny Wheeler, John Abercrombie and Dave Liebman. Their last two cd’s were both nominated for Juno Awards and their music has been described as “clearly in Canada's top ranks” (Toronto Star) and “Canadian jazz at its best” (Globe and Mail). Few groups boast such cohesiveness as these three musicians. They have created a sound all their own wherein the quality of the interaction is immediately striking. Their unique chamber music approach has been applauded for its understatement, lyricism and sense of freedom.
