Nominated for a Juno Award (Best Jazz Album 1993) and now re-mastered for digital release, saxophonist Mike Murley’s Time & Tide features a program of eight tunes including five Murley compositions plus one each by Restivo, Vivian and Billy Strayhorn. The music is inspired by the remote Cape Split in the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia, Canada where the world’s highest tides occur. As Murley states: “I spent the first twenty years of my life in and around the Fundy region and the mystique of the tides never ceased to intrigue me.”
An engaging, lyrical saxophonist, Mike Murley is one of Canada’s most celebrated and well-respected jazz artists. His critically-acclaimed recordings have placed him at the forefront of Canada’s jazz scene for the past three decades. He has played on fourteen Juno Award-winning recordings since his 1990 Two Sides album, seven as a leader or co-leader, seven as a sideman.
