Subsequently he studied composition and arranging with Frank Mella and trumpet with Carmine Caruso in New York City. He started playing professionally at the age of fifteen and became immersed in the Quebec music milieu, doing recordings, radio and television. His long-term jazz associations have been with the Nick Ayoub Quintet, the Bernard Primeau Jazz Group, the Vic Vogel and Al Baculis big bands. He has done world tours with Les Feux Follets and with his own jazz sextet. In 1995 he became a founding member of Eastwind.


George McFetridge - Piano
Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 1947, George has been a professional jazz pianist for 30 years.

After returning to Canada there were many jazz gigs in Edmonton, Toronto, and Vancouver with such well known artists as FRASER MacPHERSON, WOODY HERMAN, BENNY GOLSON, LEE KONITZ, KENNY WHEELER, WOODY SHAW, and many others. George''s highly developed style contains many influences such as McCoy Tyner, Bud Powell, Tommy Flanagan, etc. and his original compositions have been recorded on several discs, most recently his own SOLO PIANO on Unity records. Since moving to Vancouver, B.C., Canada in 1991, George has continued to grow musically leading his Quintet STRANGE WEATHER with tours to Europe most recently with JACEK KOCHON and MARIUSZ KWIATKOWSKI.

Back in New England in the mid-80’s Dave played in a house trio accompanying such established jazz stars as Al Cohn, Buddy Tate, Warren Vache, Herb Pomeroy, Al Grey, Maxine Sullivan, Tal Farlow, Ken Peplowski and others.
