Donnybrook: TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series
August 28, 5:00 pm – 6:00 pmFree
Donnybrook is an original, modern, soul-jazz and straight-ahead co-led organ trio from Toronto.
The trio concentrates on a mix of historic repertoire and original music in the tradition of the great Hammond organ trios of the 1960s. Guitarist Ben Bishop, organist Jeff McLeod and drummer Morgan Childs joined forces in 2015 with a mutual interest in the classic sounds of the records of Jimmy Smith, Don Patterson, Grant Green and Dr. Lonnie Smith, as well as modern organ groups like Mike LeDonne’s Groover Quartet and the Larry Goldings Trio, with a goal to develop a unique identity and sound in that tradition.
Since then, Donnybrook have appeared across Canada at prominent jazz venues including The Yardbird Suite, Buckingjam Palace, The Bassment Jazz Club, The Rex Hotel, The Burdock Room, and 3030 Dundas, as well as at the Markham Jazz Festival, the Brampton World of Jazz Festival, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival, and the Haliburton Forest Festival.
Donnybrook will perform as part of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series, broadcast live from the Long & McQuade Performance Hall at JAZZ.FM91.
The live concert experience in the comfort of your home, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series, presented by TD, showcases some of the most dynamic and sought-after musicians in the Toronto jazz scene.
Hosted by TD Toronto Jazz Festival artistic director Josh Grossman, each week the featured musicians will bring the energy of their traditional live performances directly to you. No cover fee, no two-drink minimum.
