Halifax-based jazz quintet Blue Spirits is a colourful collision of old and new, blending the sounds of cool jazz, bop, the blues, funk, and hip hop into each performance. The combo features the soulful and inventive horn duo of Paul St-Amand (trumpet/flugelhorn/vocals) and Andrew MacKelvie (saxophone/woodwinds), backed by an accomplished rhythm section comprised of Brendan Melchin (drums), Matt MacLennan (bass), and Ross Avey (guitar). The ensemble boasts a growing repertoire of exciting original jazz compositions. Their debut album is scheduled for release in July 2017.
