Formed in 2007, Waxwing is a co-led group created by three veterans of the Vancouver music scene: Tony Wilson on guitar, Peggy Lee on cello, and Jon Bentley on saxophone. The trio has released two studio recordings featuring their original compositions: "A Bowl Of Sixty Taxidermists" (2015 - Songlines Recordings) and "Escondido Dreams" (2007 - Drip Audio). The recipient of numerous Canada Council Grants, Waxwing has performed their unique works in concerts across Canada and has been a regular favourite in the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. The trio has also been featured many times on various CBC radio programs, both from live performances and studio recordings including a live SignalFest recording at CBC Vancouver in 2011.
