Pianist Will Bonness has been active on the Winnipeg, Canadian and international jazz scenes for two decades. At 17, Will joined Maynard Ferguson’s Big Bop Nouveau Band for a world tour, which included performances in Europe, Thailand, and the Caribbean. He has performed at all of the major Canadian jazz festivals, as well as the world’s most prestigious venues, with such luminaries as Regina Carter, Avishai Cohen, Jon Gordon, Quincy Davis, and Derrick Gardner.
Locally, he can often be seen performing with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, and the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra.
Will has two releases to his credit: Subtle Fire (2009) and Halcyon (2016). With Change of Plans, he is switching directions with a new band that includes long-time collaborators Jon Gordon (saxophone), Jocelyn Gould (voice), Julian Bradford (bass), and Fabio Ragnelli (drums).
This intense, textural, and contrasting music will be performed for the very first time on October 29.
