Canaille Toronto, ON February 10

Canaille opened the first night of Wavelength's 10th anniversary celebration with an explosive set of sensory-assaulting jazz. Their set-up of two saxophones, trumpet, drum kit, stand-up bass and keys tackled a few Sun Ra pieces to start, blowing the minds of anyone who could follow their expressive chops. Silky-smooth bass lines that walked, skipped and jumped, and a drummer who flowed across the kit like a metronomic river, anchored bombastic horn freak-outs and piercing melody stabs to showcase some of the most inventive and exciting jazz in the city.
