Recording Session at the Humber Recording Studio (located at the Humber College Lakeshore Campus in Toronto) for the CD Family Suite for large ensemble.

We did two days of recording after a three night gig at The Rex Jazz & Blues Bar in preparation for this CD. Everyone played great on this recording and the orchestrations by Terry Promane were beautifully conceived, capturing the spirit of the compositions. A big thank you to all involved and to the Ontario Arts Council for helping fund this project.
