Resident Jazz Artists Ensemble Performs at Heritage Park

A Calgary jazz tradition continues July 18 & 19 when the Resident Jazz Artists Ensemble (RAEJIS) performs for Jazz on the Lake at Heritage Park in Calgary. RAEJIS is formed by John Reid (saxophone) Allistair Elliott (trumpet) Keith Smith (guitar) and John Hyde (bass).

Jazz on the Lake at Heritage Park is a one-hour jazz cruise aboard the S.S. Moyie on Glenmore Reservoir preceded and succeeded by a jazz cocktail hour on the dock. The ensemble starts off playing funky jazz and standards on board while docked for cocktails and snacks and then sets sail around the lake where they play on-board during the entire cruise. After the cruise RAEJIS will play on the patio until sunset around 10:00 p.m.

Tickets $50; $45 for Jazz Is Society of Alberta members, students, and seniors. At Ticketmaster 777-0000 (www.ticketmaster.ca).
