Innovative and electrifying, Toronto jazz drummer Ernesto Cervini has energy to burn, whether radiating it from behind his kit or working on any number of musical and educational projects. With his JUNO-winning sextet Turboprop, Cervini flexes his arranging muscles, creating a vast landscape of musical textures and moods on which these monster musicians can play.
The band features a cross-section of some of North America’s finest and most in-demand musicians: Tara Davidson on alto saxophone, Joel Frahm on tenor saxophone, William Carn on trombone, Adrean Farrugia on piano, Dan Loomis on bass and Cervini on drums.
The band’s sound is reminiscent of the hard-swinging Jazz Messenger bands of Art Blakey, although they tackle a wide range of music; from Charlie Parker to Claude Debussy to Radiohead, plus originals from all the band members. They have already toured across Canada multiple times to rave reviews and released their JUNO award–winning third album, Abundance, on ANZIC Records (NYC) in the fall of 2018.
