Aaron Leaney

Aaron Leaney, born December 5, 1983, is a Canadian jazz saxophonist and composer who has been performing since the late 1990’s. He has worked across a great variety of genres, from avant-guard improvised music to alt rock. He is an experienced and trained jazz musician but by no means does he choose to remain limited in one genre of music. His musical personality finds him foremost as an improviser; he treasures the immediacy of a spontaneous moment and what the results achieve. But his appreciation and deep investigation in composition allows him to be free within any given form and yet never detached from it.
