Peripheral Vision: Jazz on the Wing Sunday March 11 2018 at 7:30 PM
Sunday March 11 2018
Based in Toronto, the creative leaders of Peripheral Vision are long time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring. They have assembled a synergistic musical quartet designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy.
They bridge tradition and innovation, with deeply felt influences ranging from Wayne Shorter, Booker Little, and Charles Mingus, to David Binney, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and The Bad Plus.

While the compositions are Herring and Scott's, Peripheral Vision is defined by its group rapport. Bringing back the anything-is-possible democratic approach of both 1960's jazz and garage bands, the music takes shape as a collective process.
"Unfailingly fresh, incalculable and rewarding, Peripheral Vision is giving jazz the swift kick in the pants that it needs." - S. Victor Aaron, Something Else!
"Peripheral Vision displays an amazing cohesion of sound as they cut a wide harmonic path that perhaps only a dozen other bands in North America could touch. Gernres are transcended and boundaries are smashed." - criticaljazz.com
“This outfit produces jazz for this century… all the material has something to say, propelled with elegant momentum and hearty rations of dynamic interplay.” - Geoff Chapman, The Wholenote
