Victoria Jazz Society

Jackson/Wilson Duo

Mon, June 24 - Weds, June 26 | Fathom Lounge - Hotel Grand Pacific | 9pm

Andrew Jackson and Sam Wilson have been exploring the interplay of trombone and guitar while honing their musical chemistry as a duo since 2014. Upon meeting, both musicians were searching for a setting to explore jazz in a less traditional format, which has led them to develop a common musical language and create an original duo sound. Jackson is an acclaimed trombonist and composer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia and one of the Maritimes first-call players and Wilson is a two-time ECMA-nominated artist for both of her original albums. She is influenced by jazz, improvised music, folk and fingerstyle guitar, which blend to create her unique style.

While both are acclaimed musicians/composers guided by a jazz perspective, they bring myriad influences to the project with repertoire extending from greats of the past, such as Billy Strayhorn, to folk covers by the likes of Nick Drake, and original compositions.
