The Invertigo Trio
Here's an upcoming show that I'm quite excited about this week. Jim Brenan, Rubim de Toldeo and myself have been playing together as a trio for a couple years now and we are looking forward to recording together in the next while. It's a really fun band and we're trying to incorporate many different approaches and types of tunes within the saxophone trio format.

The Invertigo Trio is the latest collaboration between Calgary jazz artists Jim Brenan on tenor saxophone, Rubim DeToledo on bass and Jon McCaslin on drums. Evoking the sounds of the classic jazz saxophone trios of the 1960s and beyond, these accomplished artists have come together to present an evening of introspective and hard swinging music inspired by such artists as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. The groups repertoire will focus on jazz standards and contemporary compositions drawn from the classic jazz era as well as pieces written and arranged specifically for this trio.
