Peripheral Vision

Peripheral Vision is one the most innovative and exciting jazz quartets that have appeared recently on the international jazz scene. The group’s creative leaders are Don Scott, guitarist, and Michael Herring, bassist. They are based in Toronto. The group has a unique musical unit that pushes the boundaries of jazz and engages the listener with a grooving and toe-tapping sound. Their unique musical voice bridges tradition with innovation. They have deep-felt influences from jazz, rock and classical. A focus is on group interaction. Peripheral Vision, following their 2016 JUNO nominations, is thrilled to tour in support of their fourth album, More Songs About Error And Shame. They were also awarded the Montreal Jazz Festival’s Galaxie Rising Star Award. Scott and Herring are joined on stage by Trevor Hogg, saxophonist, and Nick Fraser, drummer. Peripheral Vision’s compositions are Herring’s and Scotts. However, the group relationship is what defines it. The music is created as a collaborative process, bringing back the democratic approach of 1960’s jazz and garage band. Peripheral Vision’s explosive performances are rooted in this no-holds-barred philosophy. Personnel: Trevor Hogg – tenor saxophone Don Scott – guitar Michael Herring – bass Nick Fraser – drums from
