Description

Listen to "Imagine We're Sailing" featuring Brian O'Kane here.

Members of the Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra will be joined by an all-star ensemble of Calgary’s finest and emerging musicians at Calgary's Dickens Pub in an epic big band show that bridges the age gap by bringing together matured and new voices of the jazz scene.

The ensemble includes Calgary-based artists such as Jim Brenan (Maynard Ferguson Big Bop Nouveau Band), Sean Craig (Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra), David Reid (Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra), Jon Day (Deanne Matley), Johnny Summers, Andre Wickenheiser and Shane Statz (Calgary Jazz Orchestra, Prime Time Big Band).

Created in 2013, the Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra (SSJO) is a Toronto-based contemporary big band founded and led by Mason Victoria. Noted for its abnormally large size, the SSJO still manages to squeeze its way into some of the most iconic venues in Toronto, including the Rex Jazz & Blues Bar and Lula Lounge. Comprised of some of the most promising and emerging jazz artists in the GTA, the SSJO has been a headline at the Toronto Undergraduate Jazz Festival in 2015 and will be joining again in 2017. This year, the SSJO was a joint winner of the TD Discovery Series Special Projects Grant alongside the Socialist Night School, was a featured artist by Sofar Sounds, and will see the release of their first album, Imagine We’re Sailing, in November, which features special guest artist and esteemed jazz trumpeter, Brian O’Kane.
