Tenacity – TD Ottawa Jazz Festival

Florian is part of “Sea to Sea”, Christine Jensen’s project for “Tenacity”, this year’s free online edition of the Ottawa Jazz Festival. Christine put together a tentet of jazz musicians from across Canada – from Florian all the way East in Newfoundland and Labrador to Vancouver Island’s Phil Dwyer, and including drummer Larnell Lewis, trumpeters Ingrid Jensen and Brad Turner, trombonists Audrey Ochoa and Jean-Nicolas Trottier, saxophonist Shirantha Beddage, and bassist Mike Downes—to perform her arrangement of Joni Mitchell’s masterpiece Both Sides Now. The festival includes lots of interesting improv programming that works with the limitations of lockdown in many creative ways.
