Details: Join us for a performance by Ali Berkok, a Toronto-based pianist and composer known for his versatility and drive. In 2005, Berkok laid the compositional foundation of Arkana, five piece jazz outfit whose albums (Hyprovisation 2007, Kaleidoscope 2009) received critical praise. Berkok was also a key member of Mike Smith’s Muskox, a banjo-prog band that released several critically acclaimed albums and was named the best jazz band of 2008 by NOW Toronto. Ali’s current projects include Aurochs, an improvised piano/bass/drum trio, and Battleship Potemkin, re-imagined chamber score for 12 players, designed to accompany Eisenstein’s iconic propaganda film, and was premiered in October 2012 to two nights of packed houses. In addition, Ali has performed as a sideman with Kurt Elling, Jane Bunnett, Alex Dean, David Buchbinder, Shannon Butcher, Don Palmer, Nick Fraser and Andrew Downing. He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Toronto under the instruction of David Braid.
