Phil Nimmons (clarinet) David Braid (piano)
In a brilliant career spanning seven decades, jazz musician, composer and educator Phil Nimmons, has made an indelible contribution to the cultural life of Canada. He is largely responsible for bringing jazz into the mainstream of music in Canada through radio performances, concerts and workshops with Nimmons ‘N’ Nine and other groups. Best known in the early part of his career as a jazz clarinettist, bandleader, composer and arranger, he has also been a tireless advocate of jazz as new art music. Since 2004, Nimmons has performed exclusively with pianist David Braid, 53 years his junior, in an unplanned duo of spontaneous music.
