Jaelem Bhate, award winning multi-instrumentalist and conductor, teams up with bassist Jacques Forest of Calgary, trumpeter Silas Friesen of Saskatoon and percussionist Aaron Graham of Kentucky, to form this diverse quartet. While each member has a strong individual background of jazz and classical performance, The Jaelem Bhate Trio, since its inception over a year ago, has acquired a sound of its own. The group has vast experience providing music for receptions, ceremonies, Christmas parties, birthday parties, weddings, and much more. Their repertoire encompasses a broad array of swing and latin jazz standards, original compositions, and music appropriate for all seasons of the year.
