Fiona's Comments

Sweet hushaby tune, gentle guitar intro, sax styling has dusting of Michael Brecker.

About the Album

A follow up to Card’s 2008 debut Non-Fiction, Hedgerow introduces ten of Card's new compositions, featuring stunning performances by some of Canada’s top emerging jazz musicians.   On Hedgerow, Card employs many of his long time collaborators - all well known leaders and sidemen in their own right - in quintet, quartet, and trio settings. Drawing from years of live performance experience, the recording showcases new heights of expression and group improvisation from Card and his colleagues. Card demonstrates the versatility of his idiosyncratic voice both on acoustic and electric guitars.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
