Variations with Timothonius and the HAVEN Vanguard Trio
Variations is a new jazz series kicking off at the Eddy. We’re servin’ up stellar jazz tunes with a different Calgary talent every Tuesday night.
Keys prodigy Timothonius Alai presents an ultra-modern take on jazz with stylish support from the HAVEN Vanguard Trio. Expect fizzy, experimental keys and layered with neo-soul rhythms that promise to surprise, delight and mystify.
Timothonius (born April 10, 1991) is a Canadian jazz pianist, music producer, composer. He is the bandleader of the HAVEN Vanguard Trio, and the man behind the “HAVEN Party” – an event which takes place every last Monday of each month at Koi. He studied Jazz Performance at Mount Royal University (2011-2013), as well as Composition & Electronic Production at Berklee College of Music (2013-2015). Along with his Inner Circle of performing artists, composers, and music producers, Timothonius aims to curate a new wave of “modern” music by merging the worlds of Jazz, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop with an electro-acoustic texture. His inspirations include Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Nujabes, and Robert Glasper.
