Luca Benedetti Trio;

Brooklyn-based guitarist Luca Benedetti (Hermine Deurloo & Steve Gadd, Jim Campilongo, Ron Carter) returns to Vancouver for an evening with his supercharged rhythm section featuring bassist Tony Scherr (Bill Frisell, Norah Jones, Sex Mob) and percussionist Tony Mason (John Scofield, Joan Osborne, Charlie Hunter). The trio’s 2023 album Ride Awhile showcases a super-tight trio that consistently delivers adventurous original jazz.

Benedetti is no stranger to Vancouver, where he lived between 2014-2016. While in BC, he co-founded the hard-hitting country jazz outfit, Speeding West with local greats Scott Smith, Jeremy Holmes and Nino DiPasquale. The group became a local favorite known for their energetic improvisational flights that stretched well beyond their original Western Swing influences. A rotating cast of special guests included Paul Pigat, Bill Kirchen, Steve Taylor and Jimmy Roy.

Presented in partnership with Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
