Performer (guitars)

Jeff Torbert has taken an improvisatory approach to a music career — from a classical guitar degree and apprenticeships with jazz masters Jerry Granelli and David Tronzo to workshops at the Banff Centre; to performances with Symphony Nova Scotia, Upstream Orchestra, New York’s Laila Biali (formally of Sting fame), and rising pop star Rich Aucoin; to a trio playing Esbjörn Svensson’s music; to his two ECMA and Music Nova Scotia-nominated albums of original compositions: This Weather Honest and Urban Poultry & Other Hopes; to a collaboration and European tour with the Netherland’s Kenny Talkowski; to facilitating improvisation and creativity workshops at academic conferences; to working with the next generation of musicians as a full-time instructor at Acadia University; and finally to collaborating with the many amazing artists that are helping to create Mouvance!
