Album Description

“Ontario 559 West” is an upcoming release from Ian McGimpsey and Harrison Argatoff. Inspired primarily by Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon”, this album pairs the tenor saxophone and acoustic guitar in short, precise, and heartfelt songs. The songs were developed both independently and collaboratively in February of 2020 and are an instinctive blend of the contemporary jazz and singer- songwriter idioms. With intentions focused on simplicity and uncolored presentation, the early compositional process assigned each song a number, starting arbitrarily at #38. Since then, however, this intention has softened, and most pieces have been renamed. The album’s title, Ontario 559 West, is a highway in Ontario (Canada), which runs east-west about 250 km north of Toronto. This highway leads to a house on Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay where the music was recorded in early March. The landscape featured feet deep snow, an ice-covered bay, and two musicians enthusiastically recording, warming our hands by the (noisy) fireplace between takes.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
