www.EightHundredDegrees.comFor more info about the Orillia Jazz Festival Oct 13-16, 2016 and participating venues go to www.OrilliaJazzFestival.com Joe Huron has chosen the trio format as a platform to communicate. Joe’s affable persona has gently propelled the trio forward; prompting an undercurrent of musical ideas and conversations. We are invited into a world of improvised expression and leave with an understanding of intimate collaboration. There are times when one believes that Tim Moore, drummer; or Stuart Steinhart, bass; know exactly where Huron is going — not necessarily so. The level of listening and freedom between the three musicians keeps the music exciting with every subtle change of direction!
