sweet tunes, good times....

Interesting and entertaining music played by skilled and talented musicians: that's how we'd describe May 25th at The Park Theatre with Steve Kirby's Oceanic Jazz Orchestra performance of The Longitude Project. The closer to Jazz Winnipeg's Nu Sounds Series was worth the wait bringing together an unusual instrumentation in a unique programme. The audience was treated jazz performed b strings, flutes, oboe, bassoon, vibraphone along side the more standard jazz ensemble. And Mr. Kirby on bass, of course! Throughout, each member of the orchestra contributed stirring solos. Hats off to Derrick Gardner playing the role of a throat singer on trumpet.

Check out Steve Kirby as well as other members of the orchestra (Neil Watson, Shannon Kristjanson, Larry Roy, Will Bonness) are all appearing in shows in the 2014 Winnipeg International Jazz Festival June 12-22.
