!earshot charts - top 20 jazz of 2015

1 A/B Trio Can Con
Out West- (Chronograph)

Edmonton, Alberta has a reputation as a great jazz city, and, in 2011, three homegrown lads enhanced its jazz cred further by creating the supergroup, A/B Trio. Drummer Thom Bennett, sax player Dan Davis, and double bassist Josh McHan take their inspiration from contemporary players such as Chris Potter, and Dave Holland, as well as jazz greats Sonny Rollins and Joshua Redman. The trio’s repertoire ranges from inventive reinterpretations of standards to modern originals and high energy, groove based music. In February, 2015, they released their second disc, Out West, on Chronograph Records. Out West features special guest Mike Murley, who is recognized as one of the finest and most versatile sax players on the Canadian jazz scene today. Out West stayed at #1 on the national !earshot jazz chart for two months after its release.
