Reg Schwager (Guitar)

Reg Schwager was born in the Netherlands in 1962. When he was three his family moved to New Zealand where he studied Suzuki violin. When he was six his family moved again, this time to Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. There he took music lessons in recorder, flute and piano before settling on the guitar as his main instrument. By age fifteen he was playing jazz gigs in big band and small group settings and in duet with his sister Jeannette.

Since then Reg has toured extensively across Canada and worldwide with George Shearing, Diana Krall, and many others. CDs released under his own name include Resonance, Border Town, and Live at Mezzetta. His arrangements for Big Band have been recorded by the Dave McMurdo Jazz Orchestra, and his arrangements for string orchestra and jazz ensemble appear on Mike Murley’s CD, The Melody Lingers.

Peter Hum (Piano)

Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, Peter has been a mainstay of the city’s jazz community for almost three decades. He has released three albums of original, modern, mainstream jazz. A Boy’s Journey (2010), Alpha Moment (2015), and his latest recording, Ordinary Heroes, a collection of 10 compositions that respond to today’s social and political tumult, was released online in the fall of 2019.

Largely self-taught, Peter was bitten by the jazz bug when he was a teenager in the 1970s, exposed to the music of Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, and Chick Corea. He has performed with such Canadian jazz legends as Sonny Greenwich, Phil Nimmons, Pat LaBarbera, and Reg Schwager.
