Biography

From ground-breaking original compositions to jazz-inflected renditions of pop classics by acts such as The Cure, The Beatles and Joni Mitchell, Takk's repertoire is a tasteful blend of styles. Each member brings their unique personality to the ensemble, resulting in an intimate stage sound with powerful energy. The Montreal based jazz quartet is comprised of saxophonist Averil Parker, pianist Marie-Claire Durand, bassist Kathryn Palumbo, and drummer/vocalist Charlotte Cornfield. Their debut performance in April 2010 at Montreal's Oscar Peterson Concert Hall led to several incredible opportunities including a big-stage appearance at the 2010 Montreal International Jazz Festival and a successful tour in Ontario and Quebec with multiple press appearances. The members of Takk have worked extensively on composition and group sound with renowned drummer/composer Chris McCann, and have studied individually with Canadian jazz greats Dave Turner, Gary Schwartz, Jan Jarczyk and Jim Vivian.
