Drummer Tyler Hornby returns to the patio at Earls with
pianist Jon Day, bassist Jeremy Coates, and special guest
vocalist Mallory Chipman.
Tyler Hornby is one of Calgary's busiest drummers. After earning a graduate degree in music from the University of Colorado, Tyler has gone on to collaborate with the likes of Bob Mintzer, Ingrid Jensen, Frank Mantooth, Alain Caron, Randy Brecker, Eric Marienthal, Hugh Fraser, Jens Lindemann, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.
Hornby has performed at festivals, clubs and concerts in North America, South America and Europe, and has appeared on more than 30 recordings. His first solo album, Shadows of a Brighter Day, was selected for a National Jazz Compilation called Dig Your Roots. In 2009, Tyler was nominated for the Galaxie Rising Star Award of Radio Canada & General Motors Grand Jazz Award at Festival International de Jazz de Montreal and in 2011 released A Road to Remember which was nominated for a WCMA for Best Jazz Recording of the Year and received a Downbeat Magazine review. In 2013, Tyler formed the Tyler Hornby B3 Trio, releasing Locus which received a WCMA nomination for Best Jazz Recording of the Year, and recently was nominated for a 2015 WCMA award for Launch with the Tyler Hornby Quartet, featuring Ingrid Jensen & David Braid.
Tyler is an instructor at Ambrose University teaching drum set, jazz history, and jazz combo.
Revered for her rich, expressive voice and hailed as an old school jazz chanteuse with new school attitude, Edmonton vocalist Mallory Chipman is quickly becoming one of the most important names in Canadian modern and vocal jazz. Mallory spent years cultivating her own unique sound: one that fuses the improvisational elements of jazz with the poetic lyricism of folk and the grittiness of rock and roll. Mallory's composition "Angular Symphony", from her first album, Nocturnalize, was awarded the Jazz Recording of the Year award at the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards. Her recently released sophomore album, Rags and Feathers: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen was produced by Juno Award winning engineer, Paul Johnston, and is dedicated to her beloved grandfather, Tommy Banks. Mallory's performance career is balanced by her faculty position at MacEwan University where she teaches voice.
The patio will be hopping with the sounds of jazz, R&B and funk. Reserve your seats now!
