Guitarist Peripheral Vision from Toronto

Guitarist Peripheral Vision from Toronto

“Peripheral Vision displays an amazing cohesion of sound as they cut a wide harmonic path that perhaps only a dozen other bands in North America could touch. Gernres are transcended and boundaries are smashed.” - criticaljazz.com

Bio

From Toronto, 2016 Juno nominee Peripheral Vision is a quartet with a distinctive musical voice bridging tradition and innovation, with deeply felt influences ranging from Wayne Shorter, Booker Little, and Charles Mingus, to David Binney, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and The Bad Plus.

Based in Toronto, the creative leaders of Peripheral Vision are long time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring.  They have assembled a synergistic musical quartet designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy.

Extended bio arrow

“Balancing the cerebral with the visceral” (All About Jazz), GUITARIST/COMPOSER DON SCOTT has emerged as a unique and sought after voice on the Canadian jazz scene. Don is based in Toronto and leads, co-leads and has recorded with a number of projects, including Peripheral Vision, God’s Gift To Yoda, Don Scott Trio, Run Stop Run, and The Offbeat, and also showcases his vocal skills in Idioteque, playing the music of Radiohead. In demand as a versatile sideman, Don has performed with international jazz legends, David Binney, Chris Potter, Jim Black, Dave Douglas, and Ernest Ranglin, and a “who’s who” of Canadian jazz players. In 2008-2009, Don split his time between New York and Toronto, and while there, studied with Adam Rogers, Ben Monder, and Donny McCaslin.  In 2013, Don spent several months living in Berlin, studying with renowned composer, John Hollenbeck. Don’s piece, “Backbone” won the Galaxie Rising Star Award for best composition presented at the 2012 Montreal Jazz Festival.

“His solos are exciting, and his guitar tones are nothing to mess with. This guy means business!” Hugh Kilpatrick, The Purple Cabbage

MICHAEL HERRING IS A DOUBLE-BASSIST AND COMPOSER based in Toronto who writes, performs and records across genre lines, equally comfortable in jazz as in roots settings, including folk, world, and pop/rock.

Besides Peripheral Vision, Herring leads or co-leads a number of ensembles, including Michael Herring’s Vertigo, which recorded two albums featuring New York’s David Binney - the first was included in All About Jazz New York’s Top 5 Debut albums of 2006, God’s Gift to Yoda (indie jazz-rock), Way North (Brooklyn/Toronto), and Harrington and The Uplifters (Roots Rock/New Orleans pop), where you can hear Herring’s lyrics, lead and backing vocals.

Herring grew up in Victoria, B.C., then moved to Toronto, where he studied with Canadian Jazz greats David Young and Don Thompson at the University of Toronto’s Jazz Performance Program. He has been invited to attend the Banff International Jazz Workshop twice (2000, 2003) and lived in New York (2004). He has also studied with Mark Helias, Drew Gress, Ben Street, Dave Douglas, Kenny Werner, Joe Lovano, Joey Baron, Tony Malaby, Angelica Sanchez, Johannes Weidenmueller, James Genus, and Mark Turner, as well as with world-renowned bassists Rufus Reid and Ray Brown.

He was a recipient of a Chalmers Arts Fellowship (through the Ontario Arts Council) for an extended stay in New York City.

Herring has toured and recorded with such great musicians as Ab Baars (ICP/Amsterdam), Ken Vandermark, Dave Clark, David Braid, Kirk MacDonald, Mansa Sissoko (Mali, Africa), Bucky Pizzarelli, Mike Murley, Percy Sledge, and Ernest Ranglin.

“[a] Toronto bassplayer with a penchant for contemporary grooves, colours and energy… cutting-edge but accessible sounds inspired by New York’s downtown jazz innovators” Doug Fischer – The Ottawa Citizen

“the boss’s bass soars and swoops and the overall impact is tremendous” Geoff Chapman – Toronto Star TREVOR HOGG is a saxophonist based in Toronto. He performs most frequently with the Juno award nominated group Peripheral Vision (Don Scott, Michael Herring, Nick Fraser) and his own new group (Reg Schwager, Dan Fortin, Nico Dann).

NICK FRASER has been an active and engaging presence in the Toronto new jazz and improvised music community since he moved there from Ottawa in 1995. He has worked with a veritable “who’s who” of Canadian jazz and improvised music including Justin Haynes, Mike Murley, Rich Underhill, P.J. Perry, Phil Dwyer, Michael Snow, John Oswald, Andrew Downing, Jean Martin, Christine Duncan, Lina Allemano, Quinsin Nachoff, Dave Restivo, Jim Vivian, David Braid, Ryan Driver, David Occhipinti, William Carn, Nancy Walker, Kieran Overs, Kelly Jefferson, John Geggie, Scott Thomson, Marilyn Lerner, David Mott, Lori Freedman, Jean Derome, Ron Samworth and Kirk MacDonald.

In addition, he has had the opportunity to perform and/or record with such international artists as Tony Malaby, Michael Moore, Bobby Shew, Donny McCaslin, Marilyn Crispell, Anthony Braxton, Joe McPhee, William Parker, Jean-Luc Ponty, Bela Fleck, Dave Liebman, Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Wynton Marsalis, David Binney, Steve Turre, Matt Welch, Bill Carrothers and Bill Mays. Nick’s recorded works as a leader include Owls in Daylight (1997), Nick Fraser and Justin Haynes are faking it (2004) and Towns and Villages (2013).

For 10 years, he co-led the co-operative group Drumheller with Brodie West, Rob Clutton, Eric Chenaux and Doug Tielli, who released four critically acclaimed CDs between 2005 and 2013. Other projects that occupy Nick regularly are Ugly Beauties (with Marilyn Lerner and Matt Brubeck), Peripheral Vision, the Lina Allemano Four and Titanium Riot.

Nick is a founding member of The Association of Improvising Musicians of Toronto, a non-profit organization dedicated to the Toronto improvising community.

“Fraser not so much plays the drums as hurls himself whole body and soul against skin and metal… truly talented.” Bill Stunt, CBC Radio.

“Fraser can swing hard when necessary, but he’s equally a colorist with all manner of unusual tricks up his sleeve. Placing cymbals on the drums and pushing on them while striking them created a sound akin to a water gongs. His brushwork was impeccable, asserting time while, at the same time, creating richer texture. His solos were clearly focused on the musical rather than macho displays of dexterity—though in order to do what he does, it’s clear that he possesses all kinds of technical facility.” John Kelman, All About Jazz
