Toronto based saxophonist & composer Ben Truman’s performance experience includes major festivals and venues in Canada as well as international performances in Europe and the U.S. His most recent performance projects include the international modern jazz collective Underground, and a Toronto-based, self-titled quintet.

Ben has formed, managed and artistically directed a diverse set of projects ranging from concert music to creative crossover projects with world, folk and popular genres. As a performer and composer Ben has been recognized and supported by several arts organizations in the public and private sector. He has studied with Canadian luminaries such as Tim Ries, Andrew Downing, Gary Kulesha & Terry Promane. As a performer, composer and facilitator, Ben's Style reflects a broad spectrum of expression, and a willingness to seek out new directions.

His work is remarkably free of cliches and default licks… daring yet precise, with clean edges and unexpected implications… [Truman] is something special.
