Nu Sounds Series Returns For 5th Season!
on November 8,2010 by jared

UMFM proud to partner with Jazz Winnipeg on these groundbreaking musical performances!

Jazz Winnipeg is excited about the return of the popular Nu Sounds series. The series, now in its fifth season, runs from December until March. All performances take place at the Park Theatre.
 
The series launches on December 12 with the Curtis Nowosad Trio featuring Magnum KI. For this special Nu Sounds presentation, drummer Curtis Nowosad, along with bassist Julian Bradford and pianist Will Bonness, joins forces with WCMA nominated group Magnum KI to combine jazz with hip hop. This supergroup will perform contemporary and recognizable hip hop songs but take liberties with form and style, as well as composing alternate sections to provide contrast to the original grooves. Furthermore music by Magnum K.I. will be performed in a much more open-ended jazz style than what is featured on their albums and music from the jazz canon will be performed and adjusted for a hip hop style, featuring Magnum KI as soloists, with rapper Ismaila freestyling, and DJ Kutdown scratching and sampling.
 
Nu Sounds kicks off the new year on Sunday, January 16 with the Luke Sellick Quartet. Luke Sellick is a Winnipeg-born double bassist and composer. Now 19, Luke has been performing professionally for five years. He has collaborated with some of Winnipeg's best jazz artists, including Ron Paley, Will Bonness and Larry Roy. For his first Nu Sounds appearance, Sellick is eager to dedicate the entire concert to his own compositions and adventurous arrangements of standards.
 
On Sunday, February 27, award-winning composer and piano player George Colligan plays The Park Theatre. He has garnered a considerable fan base through his sideman work with the likes of Jack Dejohnette, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Buster Williams, and Ravi Coltrane, but he is best known to Winnipeggers as the latest addition to the University of Manitoba's jazz department. For his Nu Sounds concert, Colligan will be debuting a suite of new compositions written since he has moved to Winnipeg. His group will feature Kerry Politzer on keyboards and vocals Steve Kirby on bass, Jimmy Greene on saxophone and Colligan taking a turn on drums. The music will combine jazz and pop rock elements.
 
Then on March 31, the energetic sound of Paradigm Brass comes to the Nu Sounds Series. Paradigm Brass is a new model of brass ensemble, presenting a hybrid of styles designed to create a distinct sound and reach a broader range of listeners. From church stages to nightclub scenes, Paradigm brings Bach to the bars and groove to the concert halls.

Season tickets will only set you back $40.00! See all four Nu Sounds concerts and save! Individual show tickets also available for $12.00 adv./$15.00 door.

Tickets available online at http://www.jazzwinnipeg.com/buy_tickets/, by phone at 989-4656 or in person at the Park Theatre and the Jazz Winnipeg office (007-100 Arthur St.)

Manitoba Artists & Industry Win 7 Western Canadian Music Awards In Kelowna


Manitoba artists and industry picked up seven Western Canadian Music Awards at this year’s festivities over the weekend. The 2010 WCMAs, which were part of BreakOut West’s October 20-24 run in Kelowna, culminated in the gala awards show at the Kelowna Community Theatre on October 24. Five Manitoba artists and two industry professionals brought home hardware at the eighth annual celebration of music from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, and the Yukon.

Country rock trio Doc Walker continued its winning streak, picking up its second Country Recording of the Year award in a row, this year for its album Go. The band was also recently named Group of the Year for the fourth—and third consecutive—time by the Canadian Country Music Awards.

Rap ‘n’ roll outfit Grand Analog won for Rap/Hip Hop Recording of the Year for the second year in a row with its latest, Metropolis is Burning.
 
Singer/songwriter Geneviève Toupin landed Francophone Recording of the Year for her self-titled debut.

Vocalist and frequent Grand Analog collaborator Maiko Watson took home Urban Recording of the Year for her solo effort, Sweet Vibration.

Juno-winning artist Amanda Falk won Contemporary Christian/Gospel Recording of the Year for her third album, In Between the Now & Then.

Continuing the tradition of pairing two acts together for rare performances at the gala, the WCMAs featured Doc Walker on stage with Albertan Shane Yellowbird, Grand Analog with BC's You Say Party!, and Geneviève Toupin with the Yukon's Annie Lou.

At the Industry Awards Brunch on October 23, Paquin Entertainment Group was named Agency of the Year for the seventh year in a row. Graphic designer Ron Sawchuk was honoured with the award for Best Album Design of the Year for his work on The Wailin’ Jennys’ Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.

BreakOut West presents an incredible opportunity for emerging and established artists to be a part of the western Canadian music community. Participating artists and other music professionals have the chance to meet key industry stakeholders creating the opportunity for a new wave of exciting industry developments from record deals to international tours.

"The Ones Who Make It Through" Debuts On MTSTV on Friday, October 29th.
on October 23,2010 by jared

Local filmmaker Randy Frykas Follows High Five Drive as they crisscross Europe!

hen it comes to bands on tour most people think huge buses, sold out arenas and partying but independent touring is a whole different world.  Sleeping on floors, days without showering, broken down vans and sinking more and more in debt are common occurrences for this kind of touring.  "The Ones Who Make It Through" from filmmaker Randy Frykas (Call To Arms: The Story of the Royal Albert) documents what it takes to be an independent band on tour on the other side of the world.

Winnipeg band High Five Drive is about to embark on their fourth European tour all on their own dime.  After losing over $30,000 on their first three tours, their version of success is breaking even - or at least coming close.  To help realize this goal they have booked 32 shows in 34 days in ten countries all over Europe.

You can check out a trailer for this great looking homegrown documentary here!
