The Nimmons Tribute Band honours the legacy of Canada’s jazz legend Phil Nimmons O.C., O. Ont., who celebrates his 100th birthday this June. Phil has inspired generations of musicians across Canada. The band consists of former students, colleagues, and friends, led by Phil’s grandson, pianist and composer Sean Nimmons. The Nimmons Tribute showcases some of Canada’s greatest musicians, including Kevin Turcotte (trumpet), Tara Davidson (alto sax), Mike Murley (tenor sax), William Carn (trombone), Alex Dean (baritone sax), Jon Maharaj (bass) and Ethan Ardelli (drums) who have come together to celebrate Phil through his music. The band’s first recording, Vol. 1 - To The Nth was released in 2020 to critical acclaim. Vol. 2 – Generational will be released in June 2023. Both volumes feature classic Phil compositions with new arrangements by Sean Nimmons.
