Fieldtrip

Fieldtrip is a Montreal based jazz trio with an extensive and diverse repertoire comprised primarily of original compositions and reinterpretations of music from a variety of genres including jazz, folk, hip-hop, rock and popular music. All of their music serves as a vehicle for spontaneous self expression and interaction through the energetic and trusting relationship they have fostered since their formation in September, 2005. In 2005, Fieldtrip was awarded a professional development grant by the Prince Edward Island Council of the Arts to record an album of their original works. This album features a diverse array of compositions by double bassist Pat Reid written in response to his experiences volunteering and traveling in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia in the winter of 2006. This exciting debut also features celebrated Canadian saxophonist Chet Doxas as a special guest. They will be officially launching this album at the Upstairs Jazz Bar and Grill in April of 2007. Most recently, Fieldtrip was selected and awarded scholarships to attend the prestigious Winter Career Development Residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts. There they will be preparing for their Canadian tour, scheduled for this spring, where they will be presenting their debut album of original works.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
