Craig Pedersen video for Winter Jazz Fest

One the most creative and unique musicians we have in Ottawa, trumpet player Craig Pedersen, will be performing with the IMOO Orchestra on Saturday at Club Saw. He will also be guesting with Pulse Mondiale and perhaps you might see him guesting elsewhere. It is not surprising that everyone is eager to have Craig perform with them: Craig co-directs a series called Improvising Musicians of Ottawa/Outaouais (IMOO) with Ottawa saxophonist Linsey Wellman, a group that strives to present cutting edge music in the city. A driven individual Craig takes every musical situation to heart, his passion for the music always shining through, whether it is the brass band Mike Essoudry's Mash Potato Mashers, an intimate jazz setting with Renee Yoxon or the avant garde, improvised setting of the 21-piece IMOO Orchestra which is directed by Jesse Stewart and which will be performing at the Winter Jazz Fest.

Craig put together a little taste of what you might hear on Saturday at the Saw Gallery.

Thanks Craig!

The IMOO Orchestra will be performing
Saturday, Feb 4th at Club Saw starting at 15:00
