“This group exemplifies so many of the great and positive things that young jazz musicians have going for them: compositional talent, instrumental talent, and devotion to the music and one another” – Katie Malloch (CBC Radio)

“Definitely an artist and a band to watch” – John Orysik (Coastal Jazz and Blues Society)

Toronto-based jazz pianist Amanda Tosoff has been steadily gaining

critical acclaim since the release of her debut album Still Life (Cellar

Live 2006). Since then, Tosoff has released two more CDs entitled

Wait and See (2008) and Looking North (2010). Tosoff’s groups have

opened for jazz legends Bobby Hutcherson, Renee Rosnes, Oliver

Jones and Luciana Souza; and her music has been featured on CBC

Radio programs Hot Air, Jazz Beat and Canada Live. Tosoff has also

been featured in world-renowned jazz festivals such the Zacatecas

Jazz and Blues Festival in Mexico, and the Montréal Jazz Festival –

where her group won the General Motors Grand Prix de Jazz in


Tosoff’s 4th album, entitled Live At the Cellar, was recorded on July

27, 2012 at the Cellar Jazz Club in Tosoff’s home town of Vancouver.

Featuring Jodi Proznick on bass and Jesse Cahill on drums, Live

At the Cellar showcases 7 new Tosoff originals and 2 lesser-known

standards from the American song book. As far as style goes, the

music lies somewhere between traditional and modern jazz, with

hints of influence from classical and popular song.

Tosoff’s trio will embark on several tours in 2014.
