An all-star jazz band has been created by veteran musicians, Jennifer Bell and Bill Mahar. They plus ten other very accomplished musicians have banded together to bring to us their elevated level of talent. The Montreal jazz scenes is all the better for it.
Jennifer Bell is a saxophonist and Bill Mahar is a trumpeter/arranger. They are the leaders and since the release of their first album, Uncorked, in 1995 they have left their mark on the Canadian modern jazz landscape.
