ARTIST BIOS:

Born in Oakville Ontario in 1961, raised in St. Catharines, John Sherwood is easily among the top jazz pianists in Canada today. His strong foundation in classical music is apparent, but does not overshadow his ability to swing. “In the town in southern Ontario where I grew up, there is an outstanding young pianist named John Sherwood.” -Gene Lees, The Jazz Letter. “Sherwood is firmly of the Oscar Peterson school. His feature, I’m Falling in Love With Love was music that was beautifully constructed, brilliantly executed and of deeply lyrical quality and he swung mightily all evening long.” -Hugh Fraser, The Spectator. John appears regularly with Peter Appleyard, and has also performed or recorded with Moe Koffman, Guido Basso, Rob McConnell, Ed Bickert, Jake Hanna, Kenny Wheeler and Butch Miles to name but a few.

HISTORY:

Traveled on world tours with Peter Appleyard, Rob McConnell, Guido Basso, Ed Bickert, Moe Koffman, Butch Miles, Bucky Pizzerelli bringing North American Jazz to Switzerland, Japan and Italy.
