‘In Your Own Backyard’ Twilight Piano Jazz Series: Part Four

“We love organically grown events and this upcoming series we have planned is no different. Local jazz pianist Doug Mundy has recently purchased a Steinway grand piano that we are storing at our Shady Acres Studio. We know how our jazz fans LOVE the intimate concerts so we thought why not do one ‘In our own back yard’.  Not only is the series literally in our back yard all of the piano players we are featuring are local. These 4 pianists are incredible and each of them is going to take you on a journey as they pay tribute to some of the greatest jazz pianists and composers of all time.”

Juliet Dunn and Peter Shea (Co-creators: Twilight Jazz Series and TD Niagara Jazz Festival)

ABOUT DOUG

Doug Mundy is a long time Niagara resident. He began studying piano at 10 years of age, concentrating on Royal Conservatory of Music repertoire. At age 14, Doug began experimenting with improvisation, mainly playing around with simple blues progressions and pop/rock solos. At age 16, Doug began performing in rock, blues and country ensembles.

Blues improvisation led to the formal study of music (and history) at Mohawk College, York University and Brock University. Doug has studied jazz harmony, arranging, form and analysis and counterpoint. At York University, Doug had the privilege of a couple piano lessons with Canadian jazz great Don Thompson as well as a seminar with Dr. Oscar Peterson.

Doug is currently one of the most in demand musicians in the Niagara area. He is active accompanying vocalists, leading his duo and trio, working as a sideman on gigs and in the studio, as well as performing solo piano at various functions.
