A mainstay of the Toronto jazz scene for a couple of decades on piano and now on bass, Toronto native, Richard Whiteman is an extremely versatile player, fluent in styles ranging from the stride masters of the twenties, through Bud Powell and Bill Evans, to modern giants like Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock. As a leader, he has released five CDs (with a sixth on the way), and has received raves from as far away as Japan, where his “Grooveyard” disc was rated one of the Top 500 Jazz Piano Trio records of all time. On bass Whiteman joins us with a stellar cast of Reg Schwager on guitar, Amanda Tosoff on piano and Morgan Childs on drums.
