Karl Jannuska, Drummer and Composer


Karl Jannuska -][- THE HALFWAY TREE –Mp3– [PJU Records, 2012] –

THE HALFWAY TREE, a Manitoba (Canada) landmark, is a prominent cottonwood tree that stands out on the horizon along Highway 1 between Brandon and Winnipeg. It is also the name of Karl Jannuska’s fourth cd as a leader, which features the beautiful tones of one of Canada’s most talented vocalists, Sienna Dahlen. A collaboration that began four years ago, the repertoire is entirely comprised of the leader’s original compositions while both Karl and Sienna contributed to the lyric writing.

The music sits at the crossroads between several styles representing Karl’s eclectic tastes all the while remaining melodic and groovy. The band includes: Karl Jannuska (drums, compositions, lyrics), Sienna Dahlen (voice, lyrics), Olivier Zanot (alto sax), Nicolas Kummert (tenor sax), Pierre Perchaud (guitars), Tony Paeleman (piano/ Fender Rhodes) & Andrew Downing (5 string cello). -[Album Notes | CDBaby]-
