Last week, at the 25th Anniversary of the East Coast Music Association (ECMA) awards in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) Conn-Selmer’s saxophone artist Joel Miller took home the Jazz Recording of the Year Award for his album Swim.

Joel MillerJoel commented, “I'm thrilled to have received an East Coast Music Award for my album Swim. The CD was released on U.S. label Origin Records features my saxophone playing and writing along with pianist Geoffrey Keezer, Fraser Hollins and Greg Ritchie. Swim is also nominated for Juno Award this spring and I look forward to future performances in Canada and the U.S.”

“I'm also excited to have discovered the bronze Yanagisawa soprano (992). I've been playing on it a lot lately. I can't keep my hands off it actually! I'm psyched about practicing it and working it into my new repertoire,” added Joel Miller.
