Join the 45th Avenue Jazz Band in a celebration of Canadian Jazz, from coast to coast. Featuring Phil Nimmons' timeless 'Atlantic Suite', along with the world premiere of Jaelem Bhate's 'Pacific Suite'. The program will also feature works by Rob McConnell, Fred Stride, and Norman Symonds.

Phil Nimmons is a composer, born in Kamloops, BC, and residing and working in Toronto since the 1950's. His 'Atlantic Suite' was released in 1975, and won a JUNO award for best jazz album of the year. The four movements (I. Harbours, II: Islands, III: Tides, IV: Horizons) depict scenes from the Canadian Maritime coast.

Jaelem Bhate is a composer,… conductor, and percussionist from Vancouver, BC. He is a graduate student at the University of British Columbia studying with Jonathan Girard and Fred Stride. His 'Pacific Suite', inspired by Nimmons' 40 year old Atlantic Suite, revolves around themes native to his hometown and coast. Four movements (I. Straits and Narrows, II: Weeping Skies, III: Uninhabitation, IV: Sea of Glass) depict both the natural surroundings and the city that he grew up in.

We are also extremely excited to welcome Eli Bennett as a special guest soloist for this show!

Juno-nominated jazz saxophonist and 4-time Leo-Nominated film composer Eli Bennett, is one of Canada’s most awarded and recognized emerging jazz artists. His debut jazz album Breakthrough spent three months on the homepage of iTunes Canada Jazz as one of the top selling albums of 2015 and received a nomination for “Jazz Album of the Year” from the Western Canadian Music Awards. Eli has performed twice at the GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles and has shared the stage with GRAMMY Winners Oscar Peterson and the Neville Brothers, is a two-time recipient of the CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award from the National Jazz Awards, was awarded the Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for music as well as the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal from the Premier of BC. He’s currently touring internationally with Vancouver’s Juno-Nominated band, Five Alarm Funk.
