Metalwood at Village Guitar

September 15, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

With two Juno awards, five Juno nominations, and a host of other international awards, Metalwood is arguably Canada’s most decorated jazz group. Between 1997 and 2003 the name Metalwood became synonymous with groove-orinetated electric jazz, winning the band devoted fans around the world. Taking their cue from the likes of Weather Report, Miles Davis, and Return to Forever, the band developed a sound and style all their own, and in the process, the four members (Mike Murley, Brad Turner, Chris Tarry, and Ian Froman) cemented their reputations as world-class improvisors and composers. Many wondered if Metalwood would ever return. Cellar Live (the band’s new label) is proud to say… the wait is finally over. Twenty years after their Juno award-winning debut, fourteen years since their last release, Metalwood’s album “Twenty” takes the band’s genre-defining sound to new heights, while paying homage to the cohesive energy that made the group an international success. “Twenty” is more than a comeback. It is arguably Metalwood’s best album to date.
