Oliver Gannon cites Barney Kessell and Wes Montgomery as formative models, of horn players as conceptual influences, and of Art Blakey’s music as a favourite direction. His fluid swinging style is rooted in 50’s and 60’s bop. He is a generous leader, allowing the band members room to contribute. With Oliver Gannon on guitar, Nick Peck on piano, Russ Botten on bass and Craig Scott on drums. This year, the series Jazz for Barb will be happening at Frankie’s Jazz Club (765 Beatty Street, Vancouver). Tickets are $16.
