John Stech first studied the clarinet under his father, eventually swapping his clarinet for a saxophone, and then the saxophone for a piano. A four-time Juno Award nominee, Stetch has worked with Charlie Haden, Seamus Blake, and Billy Hart. Considered one of the most brilliant pianists of his generation, Stetch has been singled out for his sense of humour, his inventiveness and his fresh approach. In 2008, he recorded surprising swing versions of the themes from Star Trek, Love Boat and The Price Is Right. With bassist Sean Smith and drummer Rodney Green, he forms a trio renowned for technical proficiency.
