Tyson Naylor

Active / Available - Confirmed: Dec. 31, 2011 (Awaiting Update)
Age: 32 (estimated)

Jazz / Rock / Folk from Vancouver BC

Vancouver pianist and keyboardist Tyson Naylor has firmly established himself as one of Canada’s most compelling musical talents, equally impressive on piano, organ or accordion. Naylor’s playing as a sideman can be heard on many albums, spanning many genres. He is a member of Vancouver bands Dan Mangan, the Crackling, the Abramson Singers, Francois Houle’s Living Ditches, and his own Tyson Naylor Trio.

Naylor has made numerous appearances at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, with artists such as Tony Wilson, Bruce Freedman, and The Crackling. He’s toured throughout Canada, Germany and Poland. He has played in Europe with Tobias Delius and Tristan Honsinger (of ICP Orchestra), Christian Kögel, Jan Roder (Schlippenbach Quartet) and Joe Williamson. In Canada he has also performed with Jesse Zubot, François Houle, JP Carter and Steve Dawson.

For his own trio project, Naylor cites an eclectic mix of influences, including Misha Mengelberg, Don Cherry, Wayne Horvitz, and west-African music. His approach to composition is minimalist and organic, leaving harmonic and rhythmic space, as well as ample room for improvisation. Constantly evolving, when the trio plays, what may be a sparse, pastoral ballad nurtured until the last note on one night could be unceremoniously picked apart the next. Not to be missed.
