The Christopher Parnis Group is a 5-piece focused on melodic writing intertwined with adventurous improvisation, featuring stylistic influences ranging from Kenny Wheeler’s small group writing and free improvisation to breakbeat music, striking a balance between sentimental and thrilling. The band has been performing in developing iterations since 2019, has been featured in the Live Jazz At Ontario Place series for both 2020 and 2021, and recently debuted the original material for an upcoming record at Toronto’s Jazz Bistro main stage.
