John MacMurchy is making a name for himself as a multi-faceted composer, arranger and reed-man. Based now in Toronto, he has performed and recorded in Canada, France, Great Britain, Greece and the USA. Besides leading his own quintet, John has been a sideman for Henry Mancini, Cleo Lane, Linda Ronstadt, John Dankworth, Peter Appleyard and Guido Basso as well as a host of R&B stars. He is also well-versed in the classical and early twentieth century repertoire but jazz is his first and lasting passion. You might hear diverse influences in his music, but the compositions are cohesive and original. Here is a link to his website.
