When bandleader Brandon Goodwin won a scholarship to play at the Montreal International Jazz Festival in 2012, he formed B’s Bees with a lineup of some of the young star players in the city and never looked back. Since then, B's Bees have been in demand at prominent clubs around Montreal and the surrounding area, playing over 50 shows and headlining two weekly Jazz parties. They are currently on the roster at two locations of Montreal’s House of Jazz. They’ve also developed an entire show of Charlie Haden compositions to pay tribute to the recently passed master.
B's Bees released their first album to much acclaim in 2015, featuring all original compositions by various members of the group. The eponymous album reached the #1 spot on several jazz radio charts, and reached #2 on Earshot Online's national jazz ranking.
"B’s Bees carries on the Hard Bop torch passed down from Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers and Thelonious Monk with reverence and imagination. Not content to simply imitate, the band, under the leadership of Brandon Goodwin, forges ahead with strong writing and accomplished arrangements. Live on stage, they’re poised and professional, and they pack all the punch of veteran straight ahead jazz musicians."
-- Larry Stahlberg (Host of Jazz Straight Ahead, WERU-FM)
"If the sound of Montreal jazz group B's Bees reminds you of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, it might be because of the similar spirit."
-- Ron Netsky, Rochester City News
"B’s Bees is producing some important 21st century jazz"
-- Josef Woodard (DownBeat / Charles Lloyd: A Wild, Blatant Truth / Conversations with Charlie Haden)
