Guitarist Paul Lucas Trio featuring flautist Tom Keenlyside

Guitarist Paul Lucas Trio featuring flautist Tom Keenlyside

“Paul Lucas never disappoints. A superb jazz guitarist with exquisite touch for rhythm, for melody, for improvisation with a message. Expect to be thrilled by his new Trio.” ~ Jazz Yukon


With his new Trio, guitarist Paul Lucas is stepping out with new music ‘outside’ of his well-known and recorded passion for Afro-samba music from Brazil. For his Yukon tour, Lucas is teaming up with Canadian jazz heavyweights bassist Kerry Galloway and flautist/saxophonist Tom Keenlyside.


Extended bio arrow

PAUL LUCAS, the England-born, Vancouver-raised jazz musician lived in Phoenix, Arizona before returning to Vancouver, teaching guitar and performing, but his northern roots go deep. He built a cabin in Atlin, B.C. in 1979, and spends much time in the town that, as far as he’s concerned, is part of the Yukon. He has authored 6 books on jazz, blues/rock, swing guitar and improvisation and has specialized in Afro-samba music from Brazil.

Guitarist/Composer Lucas has four albums to his credit and is featured on many recordings both in the U.S and Canada. He has played with artists ranging from Albert Collins and Bo Diddley to Ben Tucker and Marcus Printup.

Veteran guitarist, educator and composer Paul Lucas excels in many genres. His current influences are Baden Powell and Joao Bosco. Paul’s original composing stand shoulder to shoulder with the seductive and lyrical offerings of Brazil’s finest composers.

KERRY GALLOWAY’s work encompasses roles from bassist to producer to composer/arranger. Stylistically his experience ranges from jazz (Altered Laws) to rap (Sweatshop Union), pop/opera (The Tenors), jazz fusion (The New Noakes Quartet, Crash), country (k.d. lang), variety (Bob Hope, Leon Bibb, Pat Boone, “pops” with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra), klezmer (Olam), “Buddha Bar” style lounge/chillout (Astrid), latin (World Music Award winner Gabriel Palatchi Trio, the Fito Garcia Bass Ensemble), Balkan/Flamenco (Tambura Rasa, featuring the Black Dog String Quartet) funk, R&B, reggae, Brazilian, musical theatre and more. Kerry is also co-founder and Musical Director of Steelin’ in The Years, a loving tribute to the music of Steely Dan.

Kerry has been studio bassist on hundreds of albums for artists such as Sweatshop Union (Local 604), Dan Mangan (Postcards and Daydreaming), Curtis (Portrait Of The Artist), M (a.k.a. Robin Scott, “Pop Music 2K”). In the last decade alone. Kerry’s eclectic productions have ranged from acoustic folk (Michael Friedman (Random Acts Of Tuning – 2016) to the electronic lounge/chillout of Astrid (Red Umbrella 2005 and Full Life 2012) and R&B/jazz with Steve Hilliam (Inside The Lines, 2008). His work for film and TV has included music editing for the Cartoon Network’s Ed, Edd and Eddy, Dead Heat with Kiefer Sutherland;  his “miscellaneous musical duties” have included the creation of charts and transcriptions for Randy Bachman’s DVD/book release Every Song Tells A Story.

As a classroom teacher, Kerry has taught post-secondary courses since 1991 on topics ranging from Music Theory to Theory of Record Production and Electronic Music, as well as specialized courses in software platforms like Ableton Live, Reason, Reaper, Logic and Sibelius. He is developing the world’s first narrative-form graphic-novel-format Music Theory text for engineers, producers and managers entitled Bare Knuckle, Full Contact Music Theory (That You Will Actually Use).

Kerry’s teaching experience includes PMI at Capilano University where he created the first jury criteria for B.Mus in Bass Performance in 1992, the Pacific Audio Visual Institute, the Trebas Institute, the Harbourside Institute Of Technology, the Courtney Youth Music Center and the New Westminster Jazz Clinic, and has also included music clinics abroad with the Paris-based Peter Oxley’s New Noakes Quartet. Kerry’s private bass students have included such now-prominent bassists as Marc Rogers, Andre Lachance and Darren Radtke, who have gone on to become the practitioners and educators of the next generation. He is co-founder of the Vancouver Bass Conference (a 3 day “bass boot camp”), has collaborated on Logic Networks (the third-party manual for Logic 2.6) and was a founding contributor to Activebass.com where his online bass lessons have now garnered a staggering 1,000,000+ page views and consistently remained amongst Activebass’s “Top 10 Most Popular Lessons” (out of 9000+) for over a decade. Long years of education online sparked Kerry’s interest in Classroom 2.0/Flipped Learning techniques; he deploys his current course content for private institutes using collaborative online learning environments like edmodo.com and schoology.com.

TOM KEENLYSIDE says: “I was lucky. The idea that music was to be gradually embraced as a profession with which to make a living while working a day job just didn’t happen. It was immediate and, for me, electrifying. This is how it happened.

Every morning during the week in 1964, when I was thirteen, I walked by my friend Tony’s house on the way to our first year in high school. We’d amble to school chatting about the usual…cars, girls, and the rest. One particular morning in late fall as I came up to his steps, the front door was open and his mother was playing a record…”Time Out” the American masterpiece by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. As Dave finished up his lovely intro to the gorgeous “Strange Meadowlark” Paul Desmond’s poetic saxophone played its first notes, and I was instantly hooked. I knew, in that moment, that music was what I was going to do for the rest of my life, even though I had no idea if it could generate an income. The sounds I was hearing coming from that hi-fi were new, startling and transformative for me. The music filled me to the brim, those notes cascading from Desmond’s horn, and I just knew, in that moment, that music was what I was going to do for the rest of my life.”
