Renowned jazz artists at The Arts Station this Saturday

Formerly known as Quintessential Jazz, The Jazz Council is a combo from Cranbrook BC, in the heart of the Kootenays. Bernie Primbs (sax) and Laurel Ralston (trumpet) front the group with their delicious sounds. Bernie’s soulful playing is as confident as it is creative, while Laurel’s smooth, elegant tone melts the soul.

Filling out the backline are Joel Kroeker on bass, Tim Plait on piano, and Sven Heyde on drums. The Jazz Council highlights a wide variety of music at concerts, including unique interpretations of jazz standards, as well as music from their debut album, Dawn, which is exclusively comprised of original charts by quintet members Sven Heyde, Joel Kroeker and Bernie Primbs.

The Arts Station is pleased to kick off the 2011-2012 Concert Series with this amazing quintet of true musical artists.

So come, relax and listen to the smooth and elegant sounds of The Jazz Council – musicality at its finest and an amazing treat for all.
