ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

ROB FEKETE

Robert C. Fekete is a Canadian jazz pianist, teacher and composer who shares his musical philosophy with others through performance and audio recording. His roots are planted firmly in classical and jazz traditions, how- ever he aspires to build a bridge between modern popular music and older musical art forms without losing his focus on the relevance and necessity of art in the world. Robert recognizes the importance of recruiting young people to the jazz art form. He conveys this message through his musical compositions and when he performs live. Robert also teaches at McMaster University and Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.

Robert has performed in the United States, Great Britain and Holland in jazz clubs like Ronnie Scots and festivals such as the Cardiff Bay Jazz festival. He currently performs live throughout southern Ontario.

STEVE LUCAS

As a session and touring bassist, Steve has performed and recorded with artists such as Jim Weider’s Project Percolator, multiple Grammy Award winner Levon Helm, Bruce Cockburn, guitarist Steve Kimock, Juno award winning artist Loreena McKennitt, as well as appearing on television shows such as The David Letterman Show and the Juno Awards.

Steve has also been featured in the New York Times, Bass Frontiers, and Canadian Musician Magazine, in which he was voted one of Canada’s top bass players. Steve has recorded on numerous albums including the soundtrack to the 2010 Academy Award nominated film “Precious”, performing on “Somethin’s Comin’ My Way” by NYC singer/songwriter Dan Manjovi and featuring vocalist Grace Hightower, and Bruce Cockburn’s Juno Award winning “Breakfast in New Orleans, Dinner in Timbuktu”.

Steve’s CD titled “Gamma Jazz”, which combined jazz with drum ‘n bass, trip hop and jungle has received accolades from around the world. The CD featured Steve Lucas’ bass playing, complicated beat programming and dense chord structures which propelled his ten original jazz-fusion compositions, which also featured blistering guest jazz musicians.

Steve is currently at work on his latest CD which continues the synthesis of jazz technique with modern production styles such as broken beat and dubstep, as well as incorporating film orchestration harmonies learned through studies with famed Hollywood film orchestrator Scott Smalley (Batman, Mission: Impossible) and his recent Master’s degree in music composition at York University in Toronto, Canada.
