About the Album
The Johnny Griffith Quintet is the newest project from this Canadian saxophonist and composer. Formed in early 2013 to play a series of shows and record an EP, the quintet features a line up of some of the most exciting young performers out of Canada. Special guest from NYC Jeremy Pelt adds his internationally acclaimed trumpet sound, while pianist Adrean Farrugia, bassist Jon Maharaj and drummer Ethan Ardelli offer the energy and originality of this new generation of Canadian jazz artists. Reunited for a series of performances in August 2014, the quintet recorded their debut CD, Dance with the Lady. Comprised of nine of Johnny’s original compositions, ranging in influences from Joe Henderson, Andrew Hill to Kenny Wheeler & Anton Webern, this record has strong roots in jazz tradition yet heralds the contemporary voice of this young composer.
