The LARA SOLNICKI QUARTET with award winning singer LARA SOLNICKI vocals, TED QUINLAN, guitar, GEORGE KOLLER, bass and ETHAN ARDELLI, drums.
Canadian vocalist, poet, and composer, LARA SOLNICKI brings her classically trained voice to the jazz idiom. She is a recent recipient of the Chalmers Foundation Career Development Grant from the Ontario Arts Council to study improvisation and composition for large ensemble. She has had #1 songs on Canadian jazz radio and web charts (Radio Canada, CBC) , and top 20 songs on international jazz web radio charts. She has released two internationally acclaimed CDs; “A Meadow in December” (2010, Independent) and “Whose Shadow?” (2014/2015, Inner Circle Music) which was listed in January 2016 as one of the Best Vocal Jazz releases of 2015 (Jazz History Online, USA).
Multi instrumentalist GEORGE KOLLER has over three decades accumulated hundreds of diverse performing, recording and producing credits. Beside the bass his playing of Indian stringed instruments -- Sitar, Sarode, Tanpura, and the violin-like Esraj and Dilruba—are featured in the motion pictures Such a Long Journey and Possible Worlds.
TED QUINLAN is respected as one of Canada’s most multi-faceted jazz musicians, highly skilled as a solo jazz guitarist, session player, writer, and dedicated educator. He is the long-time head of the Guitar program at Humber College, one of North America ’s most respected Jazz Studies institutions.
ETHAN ARDELLI Originally from Sydney, Nova Scotia, Ethan Ardelli is a freelancing drummer on the Toronto jazz scene. Since graduating from the University of Toronto in 2006, Ethan has had the pleasure of working with a who's who of the Canadian jazz scene as well as many acclaimed international artists.
