An Alberta jazz favourite, Don Berner, will perform live at the One Eleven Grill later this week.

On Friday and Saturday, starting at 7:30 p.m., Berner, along with Pal Courage on organ and Efa Etoroma Jr. on drums, will be at the restaurant, at 5301 43rd St.

Berner has been called “one of Canada’s fastest rising saxophone stars,” by Juno award winner P.J. Perry. Jazz icon Hugh Fraser said Berner’s talent “is supported by his compositional and band leading talents.”

Berner has performed at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C., and the Polish Embassy in Ottawa, as well as leading his sextet to Mexico’s Internacional Festival de Cervantino and returning there to perform for the Canadian Embassy’s Canada Week.

He has also performed on CBC’s Hockey Knight in Canada and on numerous radio and TV specials.

A former Grant MacEwan Outreach instructor, he maintains a busy performing, lecturing and teaching schedule.

He is completing his third album, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed Fortress of Solitude.
