Jazz vespers

Bruce Hurn’s Jazz Orchestra Collective is a gathering of some of Victoria’s finest musicians in both the jazz and classical genres. The band is a reincarnation of the former Monday Night Big Band, formed in 1998 by Hurn, along with fellow trumpeters Mike Herriott and Geoff Houghton.

Bruce Hurn’s Jazz Orchestra Collective will play Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. at Church of the Advent, Colwood, 510 Mount View Ave.

Once again Hurn has assembled an ensemble of great players to perform works by some of the greatest Big Band arrangers of our time including Rob McConnell, Sammy Nestico, Quincy Jones, Gordon Goodwin, Rick Wilkins and  Bob Mintzer.

The band also features works from some of the creative minds within the band itself and also from the local jazz community.

A freewill offering will be taken. For more information, go to www.colwoodanglican.ca.
