The CJC is fronted by three of Canada's most acclaimed and accomplished jazz treasures: saxophonist Kirk MacDonald, guitarist Lorne Lofsky and trumpeter Derrick Gardner. Augmented by clarinetist Virginia MacDonald and supported by a noted rhythm section comprised of pianist Brian Dickinson, bassist Neil Swainson and drummer Bernd Reiter, this innovative septet takes a collaborative approach to the presentation of original Canadian jazz, and blends the unique artistic visions of the leaders into one creative and cohesive voice.MacDonald, Gardner and Lofsky are icons of Canadian jazz. Kirk MacDonald, a 2x Juno Award winner and recipient of the Toronto Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award is one of the most well-established Canadian musicians of his generation. Having appeared on over 50 albums as either leader or sideman, MacDonald's influence and reach cannot be overstated. Chicago-native Derrick Gardner has performed with a who's-who of jazz greats as well as some of the most revered large ensembles in jazz including the Count Basie Orchestra and Frank Foster's Loud Minority Band. Lorne Lofsky is a master guitarist known for his pianistic voicings and virtuosic skill and a member of the Oscar Peterson Quartet.
