ELECTRONIC PRESS KITlafango.com/mikedaley1968
Mike Daley is something of a musical Renaissance man, combining careers as a musician, professor, writer and jazz tour guide. As a guitarist and singer, Mike has worked with Jeff Healey's Jazz Wizards, Drew Jurecka, Terra Hazelton, Ross Wooldridge, Don Thompson and as leader of his own trio. He studied jazz guitar with Reg Schwager, Geoff Young and Lorne Lofsky, and voice with Bob Hamper and Rosemary Burns. As a freelance professor, Mike holds a Ph.D in musicology from York University and teaches acclaimed courses on the history of jazz and other topics around the Toronto area. As a musical tour guide, Mike and his wife Jill lead jazz-themed tours to New York, Chicago and New Orleans yearly.
Mike's trio includes Chris Gale (saxophone) and Chris Banks (bass). Since moving to Toronto in 1994, Hamilton born saxophonist Chris Gale has emerged as a versatile and in demand musician working with some of Canada's finest recording artists. Chris' diverse career as a sideman has given him the opportunity to record extensively and tour throughout the world. Gale's talents as a composer and jazz artist can be heard on his debut cd Strays Stays which is an independent project featuring Gale's sextet.
Chris Banks graduated from Mohawk College in 1993 and currently lives in Toronto, working as a freelance musician. Chris also works with Alex Pangman, Ross Wooldridge and leads his own recording project, the Chris Banks Trio.
The Mike Daley Trio plays freewheeling chamber jazz that is introspective but energetic. Drawing from a repertoire of contemporary-sounding but tuneful originals and off-the-beaten-track classics, the Trio's music is melodic, thoughtful and sonically pleasing.
