Christmas Single Release Show!

Christmas Single Release Poster_ONLINE.jpg

     We’re releasing our brand new Holiday Season single “Christmas Tune” at Toronto’s May Cafe on Sun-Dec-11, 8pm! Far from being a typical Holiday Season release, “Christmas tune” is a commentary on some of the defining characteristics of modern commercial Christmas music, much of which are written in major keys, and drenched in so much saccharin that it red-lines the “happy-happy” meter. Instead, our bandleader Nick Maclean’s composition presents an antithesis to that Holiday writing approach — an eclectic and multifaceted exploration of the full spectrum of human emotion. This performance will feature label exec and “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” (NYC Village Voice) Brownman Ali, and will include a cross-section of the entire “The Long Slog” recording for those that missed the Oct CD Release making this a night of funkified electric-jazz audiences will not want to miss!
