Ottawa jazz pianist Peter Hum celebrates the launch of his third CD, Ordinary Heroes, with a special concert at the National Arts Centre’s Fourth Stage.
The album features Peter's all-star sextet performing 10 of Peter's compositions, written in response to the most pressing social and political issues of the day. The new disc was made possible with financial support from the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council.
Joining Peter at the Fourth Stage are:
Kenji Omae – saxophone (Antigonish, NS)
David Smith – trumpet (Brooklyn, NY)
Sam Kirmayer – guitar (Montreal, QC)
Alec Walkington – bass (Montreal, QC)
Ted Warren - drums (Guelph, ON)
These far-flung friends are guaranteed to fill the Fourth Stage with high-energy yet lyrical original music that will live on in the memories of listeners.
