Jane Bunnett

Primary Instrument: Sax, soprano

Born: October 22, 1955    

Jane Bunnett has become one of the foremost jazz musicians in Canada, and has gained recognition around the world for her improvising talents, technical proficiency, and writing and band leading abilities.

A 1991 Canada Council grant enabled her to travel to Paris to begin studies with Lacy.
