FROM VANCOUVER/EDMONTON
CAMPBELL RYGA QUARTET

Campbell Ryga – alto saxophone
Bob Murphy – piano
Mike Lent – bass
Sandro Dominelli - drums
Campbell Ryga is at the top echelon of Canadian alto saxophonists. A multi-award winner, he has received Juno awards, Grammy nominations, Western Canada Music Awards and was named 'Canada's Alto Saxophonist of the Year 2000' by Jazz Report Magazine. He also appeared on Michael Buble's recording 'Crazy Love' which received a Grammy Award in 2010.

He has toured across Canada and around the world on countless occasions. One of his longest-standing collaborations is with trombonist/pianist Hugh Fraser, dating back to 1981. Besides several recordings as a leader, he has contributed to over 70 jazz recordings. His personal Juno nominations were for 2001’s “Spectacular” and 2005’s “Deep Cove” which also featured Renee Rosnes and Neil Swainson.

Of more recent vintage is his 2008 “Joined at the Hip” CD on Cellar Live with Edmonton’s own P.J. Perry, the late Ross Taggart on piano, and a rhythm section of Neil Swainson and Terry Clarke, truly an all-star group.

Any jazz fan who enjoys the “P.J. Perry” sound will definitely find Campbell Ryga and his bandmates, pianist Bob Murphy, bassist Mike Lent and drummer Sandro Dominelli.

    Should be a lot of fun. The Yardbird Suite is a pretty classy little club. Just a word of warning for those not used to attending venues like this... no talking above a whisper while the show is going on, or you will get a lot of disapproving looks from the other people at the show. Just a little jazzy ettiquete that you should be aware of. Best to arrive early and get the chatter out of the way before the show starts.

    Dianne, I'd love to join you, but I'll be working in LA until mid-November. The Yardbird is a fantastic venue. Enjoy.
