John T. Davis (pianist/organist/vocalist) and Jim Heineman (saxophonist) are two Canadian jazzmen who have had to wage the war between the compulsion and the passion that they feel towards their music and the struggle that is involved with trying to make a living in the field of jazz music in Canada. John T. Davis is a Black musician from a poor rural environment. Jim Heineman is a white musician from a white middle-class urban environment. Brothers in Music begins by exploring the personalities, experiences and inspirations of these two very talented and different musicians and then moves on to examine the heart warming, brotherly relationship shared by these two musicians who have played together for over two decades. Through the musicians’ words and original music, Brothers in Music provides a rare and special look at the jazz scene in Canada.
