The Tsawwassen Arts Centre Jazz Series continues on Friday, Feb. 8 as the Ben Lockwood Quartet welcomes Craig Scott, one of Vancouver’s most in demand musicians.
Scott is an accomplished drummer, vibraphone player and percussionist. His drumming credits include club and concert dates with such Canadian jazz luminaries as Tommy Banks and Ian McDougall as well as international artists such as Randy Bachmann, Natalie McMaster and Diana Krall.
Scott has extensive recording experience in TV, film and radio, and has played on such programs as Almanac, Hot Air and Jazz Beat. As a session player, he has played on countless albums and has recorded many of the drum tracks for PG Music's interactive software program Band-In-A-Box.
For this concert Scott will be featured on vibes, and throughout the evening the group will perform a mixture of well-known standards featured on Introducing, the Craig Scott Quintet’s live album, along with other well-known tunes from the era.
Joining Lockwood on sax and Scott on vibes will be Nick Peck on organ and Joe Poole on drums.
The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance by calling the Tsawwassen Arts Centre at 604-943-9437. Tickets will also be available at the door.
