Mike Downes - The Winds of Change

Dave Restivo - piano, Mike Downes - bass, Ted Warren - drums

The Winds of Change features masterful playing from three of Canada’s finest jazz musicians. The trio offers powerful interpretations of original and traditional compositions, including the hauntingly lovely Golden Earrings. From the opening notes of the lead track Gemini, you’ll experience the depth of the trio’s music, speaking deeply and intimately to the listener.

“These three are a formidable trio under any circumstances." Chris Smith, Winnipeg Free Press

“Downes’ terrific melodic sense is reflected in his compositions and bass lines. The album is chock full of good examples of this, but perhaps none better than his solo on Sunrise.” Chris Kosky, International Society of Bassists

“Given the variety, the versatility, the virtuosity featured here, if you listen to it you'll agree there is also a total effect.” Stanley Fefferman, The Live Music Report

"One of the best CDs of 2004." JazzFM91
