Joel Frahm tenor saxophone · Dan Loomis acoustic bass · Ernesto Cervini drums


JJoel Frahm is known to all jazz-lovers as a modern icon of the tenor saxophone. An unsurpassed emotional projection and technical ability always characterize his playing which draws on the breadth of the American musical tradition including jazz, funk, rock and blues. His work as a leader and his collaboration with the leading players of his generation including Brad Mehldau, Matt Wilson, Jane Monheit and Ari Hoenig have established him as among the most important and exciting players of our time.

The New York Times says, “Joel has established an identity … as a saxophonist with a deft and assertive command” and the Ottawa Citizen sums it up well, “Joel Frahm is widely known in the jazz world for his effusive creativity, rollicking positive spirit, technical fluency and versatility.” Brad Mehldau, Joel’s childhood friend and longtime collaborator, digs a little deeper, “When I think of Joel, I think of his sound on the tenor, big and generous, very warm and comfortable. One thing I always hear in Joel’s playing is an unapologetic emotional outpouring.”

Joel’s new trio is an international affair, consisting of Toronto’s most prolific bandleader Ernesto Cervini (Myriad3, Turboprop) on drums and composer/bandleader/bassist Dan Loomis (of The Wee Trio, TS Monk, Vadim Neselovskyi) on bass. This band has been playing together for almost a decade in various projects, and they have been playing together for a trio for over 5 years now, and countless tours across North America and Europe. They will be releasing their sophomore album in the Fall of 2024.
