It’s jazz with brass pizzazz when the Salmon Arm Jazz Club presents Sandy’s Shuhorn Quintet on Feb. 6 at the Nexus at First.
It’s not often an audience has the opportunity to hear a small horn section as the focus of a jazz concert, which is something Sandy Cameron has addressed with his new quintet.
The four horns are Terry Kosowick on trumpet, Rich Thorne on trombone, Chris Petterson on tenor sax and Sandy Cameron on alto sax.
“We will play a variety of jazz arrangements written for four horns plus rhythm,” said Cameron.
“The rhythm section includes well-known keys man, Jim Johnson and bass player Dan Smith.”
The concert will include jazz arrangements gleaned from Cameron’s good friend, Ken Campbell, a fellow sax player from Victoria,
The Salmon Art Jazz Club is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to hosting live jazz performances by local and visiting artists.
