Edmonton Musician Performs at Yardbird with Quartet

Edmonton jazz saxophonist Jerrold Dubyk releases his debut CD The Way You See It this Friday, November 16 at the Yardbird Suite. Dubyk will be leading his quartet featuring Tom King (piano), Jeff Johnson (bass) and Bill George (drums) for the concert performance.

Created as a reflection of Jerrold’s experiences spanning his 12 year career as a jazz musician, ‘The Way You See It’ invites listeners to conceptualize their own image of what his music evokes.

The disc features 8 original compositions written by Jerrold, plus an original by drummer Victor Lewis. Conceived by recent study and performance experiences in the New York area for the last number of years, inspiration was taken from the roots of jazz masters including Joe Henderson, John Coltrane and Ralph Bowen. “The Way You See It” is a personal reflection of enthusiasm, honesty, integrity and emotion evident in Jerrold’s playing.

‘I wanted to write music which reflected the era of the jazz legends while incorporating some modern pop influences as well. There is some deeply enigmatic music on the album, but also some whimsical tunes played with a straight ahead approach.’

An Edmonton, Alberta native and recent graduate of Rutgers University in NJ, Jerrold is focused on performing, writing, recording and teaching.
