Don Thompson and Reg Schwager are mainstays of the Canadian jazz scene. Both accomplished band leaders and soloists, they are also consummate sidemen. Don’s bass, vibes, and piano are jazz folklore, and Reg’s “tasteful elaborations of the changes seem to end all too soon”. Halifax Chronicle
Although both have written and arranged for jazz orchestras, in this world premiere, Don writes for piano, guitar, and string ensemble. Special guests, the Penderecki String Quartet are one of Canada’s most accomplished and adventurous ensembles. This concert is a musical marriage made in heaven.
