Neil Swainson, Reg Schwager and San Murata love to play together and it comes through in their shows. While San makes his home in Northumberland, Swainson and Schwager are based in Toronto. They have a world of experience playing with leading lights of the jazz world; both have the legendary jazz pianist George Schearing in common, having played, toured and recorded with the piano master. Swainson has 5 Juno awards to his credit while Reg Schwager won the National Jazz Award as Guitarist of the Year consecutively between 2005 and 2008. Both Schwager's and Swainson's tours have taken them to Japan, birthplace and winter home of San Murata. San spends three months each year in Kumamoto playing 3 to 4 jazz gigs a week. He'll be in top form when he returns to Cobourg for the May 14 gig with Reg and Neil.
