Biography

Songlines likes working with young artists as well as more established ones. The October Trio was formed in Vancouver in 2004 when all three were in the Capilano College jazz program. The immediate chemistry led to a decision to focus on a deeper exploration of the sax trio format, but as Dan Gaucher puts it, “Our ideas started out very music specific and have gradually moved more into conceptual and expressive/emotional territory. ” Two tours of western Canadian festivals grew the music and the band concept further. They won the Galaxie Rising Star Award at the 2006 Vancouver jazz festival and in 2007 were nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for jazz album of the year (Day In, Cellar Live). In 2008 they performed at the National Jazz Awards in Toronto and played a sold-out weekend at Montreal’s Upstairs Jazz Club. In 2006 they formed a mentor-like relationship with Brad Turner, one of Canada’s most honoured jazz musicians and certainly one of our most accomplished and versatile trumpeters, equally at home in the progressive mainstream and creative music (he appears on Songlines releases by Michael Blake, Dylan van der Schyff and Chris Gestrin). Brad produced Day In and Snow, and all the compositions on Snow were written specifically for the augmented lineup.
