Kevin Elaschuk
Trumpeter Kevin Elaschuk and saxophonist Campbell Ryga have developed an extraordinary musical chemistry since joining forces recently. The duo’sadventurous modern jazz quartet (with Darren Radke bass and Brad Turner drums) can be heard to great advantage on a new CD called Any Answers (Cellar Live).

With a repertoire that includes originals by all members plus tunes by Ornette Coleman, Jackie McLean and Jack DeJohnette this all-star band is guaranteed to excite. Since relocating to Vancouver in 1986, Elaschuk has worked with pianists ‘Chris Sigerson and Lisa Miller, cellist Peggy Lee, guitarist Tony Wilson and others. As a leader or co-leader he’s performed with the Stratochiefs and ESQ (with Dave Say).



Campbell Ryga
Winner of multiple JUNO Awards, Campbell Ryga is one of the Canada’s finest and most sought after musicians. He is probably best known for his Stellar work with the Hugh Fraser Quintet, a band he’s toured and recorded with for over 20 years. Cam has worked with a diverse range of artists including Lena Horne, Mel Torme, Sheila Jordan, Bobby Shew and Pat LaBarbera. As a leader Ryga’s recent quintet recording, Spectacular (Radioland) is a spirited hard bop outing that captures the spirit of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet of the mid-‘50s.
