Trio Without Words consists of saxophonist Jon Stewart, bassist Mike Perlin, and drummer Mike Cassells. Jon and Mike Perlin are both products of the McGill University jazz performance program, while Mike Cassells studied at Queen’s University where he continues to work running the electro-acoustic studios. Mike Perlin is taking time off from his busy schedule working as a lawyer for the Ontario Apellant Court in Toronto to be in Kingston for this show. After a summer of playing music around in Kingston, Gananoque, Toronto, and Montreal, Jon Stewart is now laying hardwood floors to pay for all that play. The three have made music together for years, in many different groups around Kingston, most recently in the Kingston Jazz Composers Collective and the Greg Runions Big Band.
