With his new album Locus, drummer/composer Tyler Hornby introduces listeners to a compelling album of original compositions and arrangements filled with hard core swing and exciting funk grooves. The powerhouse trio brought together for this project features New York B3 Organ virtuoso Pat Bianchi (Pat Martino Trio, Tim Warfield, Chuck Loeb), and rising Canadian guitar star Aaron Young (Sillan & Young, The Polyjesters), alongside one of Canada’s master drummers; Tyler Hornby. When asked about the inspiration for Locus, Tyler spoke of wanting to work in a small yet cohesive configuration utilizing the warm tones from the B3 and the soaring melodic soundscapes of the guitar. Ranging from soothing ballads to high energy jazz/funk, this new group is full of fresh sounds yet enriched in the jazz tradition.
