Peter Hum – Kenji Omae Quartet
Sets at 8:00PM and 9:30PM
Pianist Peter Hum and saxophonist Kenji Omae have been musical collaborators since both lived in Ottawa three decades ago. Peter has been a mainstay of Ottawa’s jazz community since the mid-1990s and Kenji, who now lives in Halifax, has delighted audiences in Toronto, New York and Seoul over the last 20-plus years. Kenji has recorded three albums under his name that feature top New York jazz talents, and he has appeared on nearly 40 other albums, including Peter’s three acclaimed CDs. Expect dynamic but lyrical original compositions from both Peter and Kenji, and perhaps some fresh takes on a few jazz standards.
