6-time Juno nominee and Steinway Artist, pianist John Stetch is on his first Canadian quartet tour in 20 years playing swinging jazz to east European flavours to classically influenced cinematic excursions. Presented by Jazz Yukon
After many solo piano tours, John Stetch's New York City-based quartet "Vulneraville" is touring on the heels of releasing their first live album, bringing Stetch's discography to 15 recordings. A top notch band. Steve Kortyka - a Yamaha saxophone artist who tours with Lady Gaga's jazz project, Philippe Lemm - Holland's most in-demand drummer who studied Indian music extensively, a Ben Tiberio - at 25 already plays bass in the top clubs of NYC.
Legendary U.S. bassist, composer and bandleader Rufus Reid says, "FANTASTIC! There is such clarity and so much humor in Stetch's playing! I have always loved that about him."
