Canada's Brandi Disterheft is a Juno Award-winning bassist, composer, and bandleader whose music straddles the line between ebullient, straight-ahead jazz and genre-bending original compositions. In 2007, she made her debut with the aptly titled Debut, featuring Chris Gale, Alexander Brown, Nathan Hiltz, Adrean Farrugia, David Virelles, Sly Juhas, and Sophia Perlman. The album was a huge critical success, winning Disterheft the Juno Award for Traditional Jazz Album of the Year. She then followed up with Second Side, an adventurous album that found her expanding her stylistic palette to include contemporary jazz, big-band arrangements, and Latin rhythms.Her third studio album, 2012's Gratitude, reflected her growth with an all-star lineup, featuring trumpeter Sean Jones, alto saxophonist Vincent Herring, flautist Anne Drummond, pianist Renee Rosnes, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. The album also showcased her vocals, with songs delivered in English and French. In 2016, Disterheft released her fourth solo album, Blue Canvas, featuring pianist Harold Mabern and drummer Joe Farnsworth.
