The Creative Music Series Presents

Togetherness! began in Montreal in 2016, and the Boston edition was born in 2019. Both groups have been active across Canada and the US, performing joyful, adventurous, swinging music from South Africa and beyond. At the heart of the music are compositions by Abdullah Ibrahim, Dudu Pukwana, Johnny Dyani, William Parker, Don Cherry, Ellwood Epps, and more. They are a who’s who of Boston Jazz musicians, long time part of the core of the creative scene:

Ellwood Epps (trumpet)

 

Jeb Bishop (trombone),

Jorrit Dijkstra (saxophones),

Nathan McBride (bass),

Curt Newton (drums),

Matt Crane (percussion

 

Ellwood Epps is an improvising trumpet player, active in creative music scenes across Canada, Boston and the US. He has performed with Steve Lacy, William Parker, Josh Zubot, Henry Grimes, Le Quan Ninh, Joe McPhee, Butch Morris, John Butcher, and Marshall Allen, and appears on more than 100 recordings. He has appeared internationally at the Stone, CGB’s, The Jazz Gallery, the Guelph, Vancouver, Halifax, and Toronto Jazz Festivals, FIMAV (Victoriaville), Festival of New Trumpet (NYC), Earshot (Seattle), Suoni Per Il Popolo, and the Off Festival de Jazz (Montréal).
