The level of interplay that the group achieved in a very short amount of time is remarkable...
Tunnel Six is a sextet comprised of some of the most notable up and coming jazz musicians from the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. and from Eastern Canada. The unique collective was formed when its members were attending the International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. Though the band was formed by a chance meeting, the strong musical chemistry between the band members was immediately evident from the first notes they played. Within the span of the three-week workshop, the band members felt as though they had already been playing together for years. They play original compositions by all the band members and hope to connect to their audiences through the strong and intuitive storytelling elements of their improvisations. With generous funding from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Regional Arts and Culture Council, they completed an ambitious North American tour stretching from Montreal to Portland in May and June of 2010. At the conclusion of the tour, they recorded their debut album "Lake Superior," which is being released in May of 2011 on OA2 Records with an accompanying Western Canada Tour.
