To The Nth by The Nimmons Tribute honours the legacy of Canada’s living jazz legend Phil Nimmons O.C., O. Ont. The album brings vintage Phil compositions through new arrangements by grandson, pianist and composer Sean Nimmons.
To The Nth features some of Canada’s greatest musicians, many of whom are JUNO Award winners. The Nimmons Tribute led by Sean Nimmons consists of former students, colleagues, friends and family, who have come together to celebrate Phil through his music.
The Nimmons Tribute consists of Kevin Turcotte, Tara Davidson, Mike Murley, William Carn, Perry White, Sean Nimmons, Jon Maharaj and Ethan Ardelli – each superb talents who are highly regarded as some of Canada’s top jazz musicians. These award-winning musicians are composers and bandleaders in their own right who have an impressive touring, recording and performing history. Some have been students of Phil Nimmons; others are colleagues. Each musician joined the tribute because of their deep appreciation of Phil and the contribution he made to their careers and to jazz in Canada.
