We are happy to present this fall show featuring the Artie Roth Quartet. The group will be featuring music from their latest release Discern.
Toronto-born jazz bassist Artie Roth has been an active composer, bandleader, performer and educator in the national and international jazz communities, since his graduation from York University in 1992 with the Oscar Peterson Scholarship. After two Canada Council sponsored study tenures in New York City (1993 and 1997), Artie returned to Toronto establishing himself as one of the busiest, full-time composer/performers in Toronto. As a leader of his own group, Artie released “Parallels” in 2005, “Currently Experiencing” in 2013, and most recently “Discern” in 2015. As well as leading his own group, Artie is also an active member of The Rich Underhill Group, The Bob Brough Quartet, Kollage and The Jazz Collective.
