Big Band Sounds Warm Chilly Winter Evening

Prime Time Big Band, Calgary’s premier Big Band, is hosting a CD Release Party tonight at the Red & White Club in Calgary from 7-10 p.m.

The event celebrates the release of their debut CD “for our Friends,” fourteen well-honed tracks with composition ranging from the Big Band Era to today’s contemporary jazz writers.

Under the direction of Dave Jones, Prime Time is one of Calgary’s longest-running and most successful Big Bands, attracting the finest musicians the city offers. The music features solos by band members such as Al Muirhead, Bob Day, Pat Belliveau, and Brian Walley, while powerhouse vocalist Shari Chaskin lends her powerhouse sound to four of the cuts. Special guest saxophonist P.J. Perry also appears on two of the tracks.

The release party will feature a live performance by Prime Time, and a meet & greet and autograph session.
