About the Event

“Gordon Grdina has managed to place a finger in every corner of the jazz/world fusion room." - PopMatters. Juno-winning Oud/Guitarist Grdina is known for his incredible versatility and ability to bring a fresh and edgy vibe to any ensemble he joins or forms. His sound is a combination of his interests in mainstream jazz, free-form improvisation and Arabic classical music. His latest ensemble, the Gordon Grdina Quartet is inspired by the complexity of Bartok, the freedom of Ornette Coleman, the intensity of Soundgarden and the delicacy of Webern. His carefully formed quartet combines the traditions of jazz improvisation, complex and memorable compositions and a dynamic freedom to the music that ebbs and flows with each tune.
