An emerging saxophonist and music educator on Toronto‘s vibrant music scene, Thomas Steele has had the opportunity to connect with some of North America’s finest faces in jazz. From working with Maria Schneider, Gordon Foote, Alex Dean and Colleen Allen, to studying with Mike Murley, Kelly Jefferson and Tara Davidson, amongst others.
A saxophonist and woodwind doubler, Thomas has enjoyed performance opportunities through both big band and small jazz ensembles.
