In tribute to our friend and colleague Ross Taggart who is currently battling renal cancer, the program will feature contributions from six of Ross’ favorite internationally-acclaimed jazz groups from Vancouver and Victoria. Each group shares the honor of having Ross Taggart as a founding member. The concert will feature Ian McDougall Sextet, Hugh Fraser Quintet, Bill Coon Quartet, Ugetsu, Jill Townsend Big Band, Bob Murphy Duo with Campbell Ryga. There will be a host rhythm section before and after the concert, providing an opportunity for Ross’ many friends in music to contribute musically to the spirit of the evening. Come early and stay late to enjoy the pre and post concert. The pre-concert music will start at 6:30 PM.
This event is SOLD OUT. Further donations can be sent to Vancouver Musicians Association at 100 – 925 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E4.
