Colin Fisher and Mike Gennaro - [improvisation]

Taken shockingly suddenly and entirely too soon, Ken Aldcroft's passing left a heavy mark on many groups: family, friends, neighbours, students as well as musical collaborators and appreciators. All of these were gathered together to share their sorrow and find some joy through fellowship and music in an evening of remembrances and sounds at The Tranzac, where Aldcroft had played so often. After some fellowship over food from the heavily-laden potluck and the first of many reminiscences from the stage came this pairing, driven by drummer Mike Gennaro — a frequent duo partner with Aldcroft — and saxophonist Colin Fisher, bringing to mind in a short ascension blast the music the three had made together.
