The Mark Segger Sextet is a Toronto-based avant-chamber-jazz group formed in 2008 to play the music of drummer and composer Mark Segger. The group features seasoned veterans of the Canadian jazz scene (Jim Lewis, Tania Gill and Rob Clutton) as well as formidable players from a younger generation (Chris Willes, Heather Segger and Mark Segger). A key product of Toronto’s vibrant creative music scene that has emerged through venues like Somewhere There, the Tranzac, and the Rex jazz club, the Sextet released a debut recording, “The Beginning,” in March 2011 and has been performing across Canada since then.
“one of Canada’s most noteworthy emerging voices in jazz and creative music”
