An engaging, lyrical saxophonist, Mike Murley is one of Canada's finest jazz talents and one of the most versatile players on the scene today. He has played on eleven Juno Award-winning recordings since 1991, the latest in 2013 for his trio recording Test of Time.
Murley has recorded with veteran Canadian artists such as Ed Bickert, Guido Basso, and Rob McConnell. On the more contemporary side, Murley has collaborated with improvisers and composers, including pianist David Braid and guitarist David Occhipinti. He is also known for his work with Metalwood.
In August 2011 Murley accepted a full-time lecturer position at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music. He has also taught at the York University, Humber College, and has been a visiting member of faculty at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
