    U of T Jazz Orchestra Launches New CD

    Thursday, October 24 2013, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    On Oct 24, the UTJO will officially release their new CD entitled Reflections, featuring the music of Juno Award-winning U of T Jazz faculty saxophonist Mike Murley. All the compositions on Reflections are by Mike Murley. Arranging credits go to Mike Murley, Terry Promane, John MacLeod and Jeff Deegan. Mike is a featured soloist on every tune; other solos are contributed by Tim Lemke (gtr); Landen Vieira, Matt Woroshyl and Bryan Qu (sax); Ben Hognestad (pno); Brad Eaton (tpt); Angela Turone (voice); Michael Brooker (tbn); Malcolm Connor (bass) and Mat MacDonald (drums). The UTJO is directed by Gordon Foote. Reflections was executive produced by Terry Sheard, engineered by Jon Bartel Audio and mastered by George Seara Sound. About the University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra The University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra is celebrating nearly twenty years of existence. Led for many years by U of T Jazz founder Paul Read, the band, then called the 10:00 Jazz Orchestra produced a series of fine recordings documenting the hundreds (thousands?) of talented young jazz musicians who have gone through the U of T Jazz ranks to become highly regarded jazz musicians on the scene today. The musicians you hear on the latest recording fully live up to the substantial legacy. Paul eventually passed on the baton and his office to Terry Promane, the current Coordinator of Jazz Studies. A former student of Paul’s, Terry brought his own musical vision, years of professional playing experience and substantial arranging skills to the group. TP now leads TPE, an elite 10-12 piece ensemble, also due to release a CD this year. In 2012 Gordon Foote joined the U of T Jazz faculty, finally seeing the light after a brief 26-year stint as professor at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University, where he served as Dean (interim), Associate Dean (Academic and Student Affairs), Chair of the Department of Performance, Director of Graduate Studies and Chair of the Jazz Area. Gordon now leads the UTJO and has put his unique stamp on the group.
