Will Fisher: Oct 26 at 7pm at The Mansion

The Kingston Jazz Society is pleased to present The Will Fisher Coastal Quartet, who will be making their Kingston debut on Friday October 26th at 7pm at The Mansion.

The group will be performing in Kingston in support of their Release Tour for the Music Nova Scotia-nominated ‘2012 Jazz Recording of the Year’ album Portage.

The band features an exciting line-up of musicians including:

  • Mike Downes (bass)
  • Mikko Hilden (guitar)
  • Jim Lewis (trumpet)
  • Will Fisher (drums). Casino En Ligne

The album has been receiving rave reviews and has been named:

“a quintessentially Canadian, modern mainstream jazz disc — and it’s quite a good one at that.” (Ottawa Citizen)

All About Jazz has this to say in their review:

“Whereas some drummers lead the charge and others spur on the ensemble from behind, Will Fisher takes the approach of examining the landscape from above and letting his rhythms settle down into the seams between the notes of others. A very strong album.”
