Pianist and composer Bernie Senensky has been a staple of the Canadian jazz scene for more than half a century, working with the likes of Chet Baker, Art Pepper and Elvin Jones along with a nearly 20-year musical partnership with Moe Koffman.

Back in 1989, Senensky recorded an album in a Toronto studio that’s finally been released thanks to Cellar Live. The recording features two fellow Toronto jazz veterans, bassist Neil Swainson and drummer Barry Elmes, along with the talents of alto saxophonist Bob Mover and trumpet player Sam Noto.

Senensky joined us to talk about Don’t Look Back and its discovery all these years later.
