Building on the success of a Canada-wide remote recording project during the pandemic, composers Paul Suchan and Silas Friesen have combined forces to create Cloudburst, an eclectic album for large jazz ensemble. Rooted in the big band tradition and influenced by classical, alt-rock, and modern jazz, the album showcases the differing compositional styles of Paul and Silas. The Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra, directed by Dean McNeill, will perform the premiere of Cloudburst. Rhett Schroeder and the Footnotes Big Band will play an opening set of jazz, funk, and rock.
