Triology is a supergroup of award-winning Canadian jazz musicians with Jodi Proznick on bass, Miles Black on piano and Bill Coon on guitar. Together they have joined forces to form one of Canada's finest jazz trios. All three members have won numerous accolades over the years including JUNO nominations, National Jazz Awards, Galaxie Rising Star Awards and Western Canadian Music Awards, and have shared the stage with jazz stars such as Lewis Nash, George Coleman, David Fathead Newman, Ed Thigpen, Clark Terry, Max Roach, and Harry “Sweets” Edison.

Formed in 2008 and fashioned after the great early jazz trios of Nat King Cole and Oscar Peterson, they will be performing wonderful impromptu arrangements of classic standards and original tunes. This is a show you don’t want to miss.

Bill Coon is an amazing and fluid guitarist. Originally from Montreal, Bill has over 25 years professional experience and has worked with many jazz greats, including Jimmy Heath, Eddie Daniels, and Dr. Lonnie Smith.

Jodi Proznick is an award-winning bassist and has become one of Canada’s “top call” artists. Jodi leads her own quartet and is a member of many other amazing jazz ensembles, such as the Tilden Webb Trio and the Oliver Gannon Quartet. Some of the legendary talents she has accompanied: Lewis Nash, George Coleman, David Fathead Newman, Ed Thigpen, Charles McPherson, Mark Murphy and Sheila Jordan.

Miles Black has over 30 years’ experience and is a highly accomplished pianist and composer, who has performed worldwide and recorded extensively. Miles has worked with many jazz greats, including Max Roach, Lew Tabackin, Houston Person and Harry “Sweets” Edison.
