Ian Gordon-Lennox Trumpet, euphonium, tuba

Ian Gordon-Lennox was born in 1958 in Ottawa, Canada. He studied classical music and jazz in Geneva.

Since the late 1970's, he has toured in Europe, Russia, the Baltic States, Africa and the USA, playing with musicians such as Glen Ferris, Erik Truffaz, Barre Phillips, Tom Varner or Dominique Pyfarely in numerous festivals, including Montreux and Willisau.

His marked interest for audiovisual arts and all forms of on- stage expression lead him to compose for several bands as well as for theatre, “theatrical music” and dance, as well as participating in many recordings.

Teacher at the Montreux Jazz Conservatory and at the Professionnal Jazz School in Geneva, he has also founded his own band,«Ian Gordon-Lennox Low Brass». They issued their first CD in 1999

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
