Ernesto Cervini Quartet
Details: In just a few years, the Ernesto Cervini Quartet has earned a reputation as one of North America’s most exciting modern jazz groups. Featuring drummer-leader and Hart House Jazz Ensemble Conductor Ernesto Cervini, the Quartet released the live album There in autumn 2011. The Ottawa Citizen said: “On There, you can practically hear the musicians smiling and reveling in their creativity and musical repartee. Some superb, high-energy, spur-of-the-moment music.” Ernesto is a graduate of the University of Toronto and the Manhattan School of Music, he has played some of the hippest stages in North America, from New York City’s Birdland to Toronto’s Massey Hall. Along with fronting his own quartet, Cervini co-leads the trios MEM3 and Myriad, as well as drums for such groups as the Amy Cervini Quintet (led by his singer sister) and vocal group Monday Off.
