Canadian jazz trumpeter and composer Mike Field will perform his trademark bright, upbeat and energetic music at the Salmon Arm Jazz Club on Thursday, Nov. 12.

His latest album, Rush Mode, won five Aurora Awards, two Independent Music Video Awards and was nominated for two Independent Music Awards.

He performs his compositions with local musicians at jazz festivals, societies and clubs in New Zealand, Australia, Europe, North America and Antarctica. Notable recent concerts include the Nelson Jazz Festival in New Zealand, the Grampians Jazz Festival in Australia, the Newmarket and Niagara-on-the-Lake Jazz Festivals in Canada, The Lighthouse Cafe in Los Angeles, SCAT Jazz Club in Madeira and Gregory’s Jazz Club in Rome.

Field’s melodies are dynamic and exciting and since learning languages and travelling to all corners of the world has always been a part of his life, the titles of his songs often reflect movement and cultures – such as Missing in Paris, Streets of Santa Monica or the Latin-flavoured tune, El sótano.

Field began playing the trumpet at the age of 10 and studied privately with classical performers in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. In 2001, he entered the Masters of Jazz Performance program at New York University and began composing upon returning to Toronto in 2003.

By 2007, he was performing with several local jazz, reggae, funk and experimental bands, forming his own jazz quintet in 2009.

Field performs from 7 to 9 p.m. in the banquet room of Shuswap Chefs. Admission is by donation. A tapas and beverage menu is available.
