Tim Posgate Horn Band

Unknown - Confirmed: Apr. 3, 2009 (Awaiting Update)
The Tim Posgate Horn Band has just released their second CD Banjo Hockey on Vancouver’s Black Hen Music, featuring New York tuba-legend Howard Johnson. The music is guided by Posgate’s obsession or re-orientation towards the five-string banjo. Best known for being an eclectic modern jazz guitarist and bandleader his new music is drawing heavily on folk and bluegrass traditions but with instrumentation resembling an early jazz quartet line up (trumpet, tuba, clarinet or tenor sax and banjo). Posgate has been touring Canada and internationally with his award winning musical friends Lina Allemano trumpet and Quinsin Nachoff saxophone/clarinet for more than a decade, and currently they include special guest Jay Burr tuba.
“Broad but focused . . . Posgate comes up with some provocative melodic lines and some gorgeous harmonies.” – Mark Miller, Globe and Mail
