Mike Boguski Detour Album Cover

Mike Boguski Trio – Detour

Mike Boguski is Blue Rodeo’s keyboardist, a position he’s held since 2008. But like others in the group, his musical ambition extends beyond furthering the legacy of Canada’s roots rock institution. On his new album Detour, Boguski teams up with Canadian jazz heavyweights, bassist Roberto Occhipinti and drummer Davide Direnzo, to put new spins on some familiar songs. Taking a stripped-down approach that hearkens back to classic Blue Note recordings of the 1940s and 1950s, the trio take on standards such as Miles Davis’ “So What” and Horace Silver’s “The Preacher,” to a range of tunes by Blue Rodeo, along with an original piece paying tribute to Ramsey Lewis, one of Boguski’s heroes.

Detour follows Boguski’s stunning 2019 solo piano album Blues For The Penitent, and the singles “December” and “Message From Mars” that found him backed by Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies on guitar, and the original Blue Rodeo rhythm section, bassist Bazil Donovan and drummer Cleave Anderson.
