FRASER HOLLINS & THE PHOENIX
The Phoenix is a band of seasoned Montreal-based musicians: Fraser Hollins, Samuel Blais, Carlos Jiménez, and Rich Irwin. Fraser assembled the group in the spring of 2021, when venues started to open up again after the Pandemic. In the two year history of the band, they have performed a dozen concerts at jazz clubs and jazz festivals in Quebec and Ontario. Their repertoire consists of a book of mostly new compositions written by Fraser for this dynamic group.
Samuel Blais - alto and baritone saxophones, and clarinet
Carlos Jiménez - guitar
Fraser Hollins - acoustic and electric basses
Rich Irwin - drums
