Peripheral Vision: »a rules-breaking jazz quartet comprised of some of the best modern players around […] Fast-paced, intricate, and inventive.« – CBC Music
Mit ihrer ›alles ist möglich‹-Haltung, inspiriert durch die Aufbruchsstimmung der Jazz- und Garage-Bands der 60er, formt die Band ihren Sound in einem kollektivem Prozess, unmittelbar und hart groovend. Ihre kompromisslose Philosophie ist die Grundlage für die energetischen Konzerte von Peripheral Vision.

Peripheral Vision is one of the most exciting and innovative jazz quartets on the international jazz scene, performing together for over 10 years. Based in Toronto, Canada, the creative leaders of the group are long time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring. They have assembled a synergistic musical unit designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy. Their distinctive musical voice bridges tradition and innovation, with deeply felt influences ranging from jazz, rock, classical, and improv, with a focus on dynamic group interaction. Following up on their JUNO nomination, Peripheral Vision is excited to be touring in support of their fifth CD release, the monumental double album, Irrational Revelation and Mutual Humiliation. They also were awarded the Montreal Jazz Festival’s Galaxie Rising Star Award. Scott and Herring are joined by saxophonist Trevor Hogg and drummer Nick Fraser. While the compositions are Herring and Scott's, Peripheral Vision is defined by its group rapport. Bringing back the anything-is-possible democratic approach of both 1960's jazz and garage bands, the music takes shape as a collective process. This no-holds-barred philosophy is at the root of Peripheral Vision's explosive performances.
