Fairly prominent jazz saxophonist from my city (he even won a Juno :O).

Nothing on youtube, so I uploaded a track from his latest.

trying to determine a genre on this guy, your sample says be bop, but the web site plays big band, I'll look around on the web and see what I can find out.

I'd be far more inclined to call it bop than big band.  A lot of his stuff could also be called cool jazz, I think.

EDIT: seems to me that the big band label comes from the things he has done with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, which isn't really representative of him
