Toronto‐based trumpeter and composer Mike Field has the capacity for vision much like a phoenix scanning the landscape and collecting sensory information, creating with intense excitement and deathless inspiration. He composes music for his own
band, The Mike Field Jazz Quintet, which is celebrating the release of its debut album this year, and can also be frequently heard playing with various bands at local concert venues such as The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, The El Mocambo and The
Rex. He has toured Canada three times (with rock/funk band Jay Spectre), played the Beaches Jazz Festival in Toronto, and toured in New Zealand (where his trumpet can be heard in the experimental bossa‐nova collective The Inverts). He is also in
the well‐known reggae collective High Plains Drifter, playing numerous local Bob Marley and Peter Tosh tribute shows. Field studied jazz performance at New York University. Here is a link to his website. Here is link to his facebook fan page.
