Allison Au Jazz Quartet

Jazz saxophonist, composer and arranger Allison Au refuses to be defined. Born to a Chinese father and Jewish mother, and raised in multicultural Toronto, Allison soon turned to jazz as an outlet for self-expression, exploration and musical experimentation.  Her music weaves a mosaic of influences into a seamless and soulful sound, a concoction steeped in the tradition of jazz, but skillfully laced with elements of classical, pop, R&B/hip hop, Latin and world music.  The Allison Au Quartet (Allison, saxophone; Todd Pentney, piano; Jon Maharaj, bass; Ethan Ardelli, drums) earned a JUNO Award for their 2016 release, Forest Grove, and garnered a JUNO Nomination for their 2013 debut release, The Sky Was Pale Blue, Then Grey.
