Not too many musicians can claim to have excelled in SKA, funk, jump-jive, R&B and toured world stages in various guises to finally settle in as respected Jazz artist. And I haven’t even mentioned the Tom Waits connection yet. Well if variety is the spice of life, my guest on today’s program, has enjoyed a zesty career over the past few decades.
Ottawa native singer, trombonist, composer, producer and arranger Steve Berndt is now a fixture on the Ottawa jazz scene. With a new full-length disc called Déjà Vu in hand, The Steve Berndt Trio are performing this evening at the Brookstreet Hotel.
