Qualicum Beach musician continues to show he's a player in the music world

Phil Dwyer

Qualicum Beach jazz musician Phil Dwyer will be adding one more Juno Award to the fine collection he already has on his mantle.

Dwyer’s reputation on the jazz scene has long been at the highest level. He already owns four Junos and was awarded one more on April 1 in Ottawa, in the category of Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for his latest work, Changing Seasons.

His most ambitious project yet, the CD was released in October 2011.

The acclaimed saxophonist/composer/bandleader will be bringing home the prestigious hardware for a project he produced with violin virtuoso Mark Fewer.

The violin concerto was recorded in July 2011 at the state of the art Vancouver recording studio The Factory with a 17-piece jazz band and a 21-piece string section.
