About Pat Collins Trio:
Originally from Qualicum Beach, B.C., bassist Pat Collins moved to Toronto in 1988 and has become one of the more active bassists on the Canadian Jazz Scene. Pat has performed with such legendary musicians as Oscar Peterson, Joe Henderson, Dizzy Gillespie, Herb Ellis, Jimmy Cobb and Lee Konitz. He has also performed with legendary Canadian musicians as Moe Koffman, Rob McConnell, Ed Bickert, Peter Appleyard and Don Thompson.
In January 2020, Pat released his second album as a leader with a trio featuring two of Canada’s premier jazz musicians, Tom Szczesniak on accordion and Reg Schwager on guitar. The album is called, “Time Well Spent” and has received rave reviews. The album was included on Jazz FM’s Top 25 jazz albums of 2020, and Jazz FM personality Heather Bambrick said the players “form a powerhouse trio. Together, they have a synergy that is just stunning, each player demonstrating his mastery while achieving a brilliant connection to his musical mates. Time Well Spent is poignant and gorgeous”.
Peter Hum of the Ottawa Citizen included “Time Well Spent on his top 10 jazz albums of 2020, and said, “Toronto area bassist Pat Collins focuses on absolutely lovely and evocative music…On a tender version of Paul Simon’s “Still Crazy After All These Years”, Collins’s acoustic bass tugs at heartstrings”.
