The Bill McBirnie Trio featuring Bernie Senensky and Anthony Michelli Find Your Place

Bill McBirnie's new album, Find Your Place, departs in a significant way from his previously acclaimed acoustic jazz projects ("Mercy" with Robi Botos; “Paco Paco" with Bernie Senensky; and “Nature Boy" with Mark Eisenman).

In FIND YOUR PLACE, Bill places the flute in a very unlikely role...as part of an organ trio!

For this singular format, Bill has recruited two outstanding fellow Canadian musicians, Bernie Senensky on Hammond B3 organ and Anthony Michelli on drums.

In keeping with Bill's previous acoustic projects, Find Your Place combines a clear acoustic sonority with the natural ambiance of a blowing session.

Find Your Place track list:
  1. So In Love (Cole Porter) – Latin
  2. Yes Indeed! (Sy Oliver) – for Sir James Galway – gospel
  3. Sister Sadie (Horace Silver) – swing
  4. Oh! Darling (Lennon/McCartney) – shuffle
  5. Minority (Gigi Gryce) – bebop
  6. Estate (Martino/Brighetti) – bossa nova
  7. Jeannine (Duke Pearson) – swing
  8. Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You (Redman/Razaf) – ballad
  9. Yes Or No (Wayne Shorter) – modal
  10. Soy Califa (Dexter Gordon) – Latin/swing
  11. Rhythm-A-Ning (Thelonious Monk) – swing
  12. Find Your Place (Bill McBirnie) – for Svetlana - bossa nova

Find Your Place is now available at both CDBaby and iTunes.

[Do not hesitate to contact Bill directly regarding reviews or interviews about this new release.]

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
