Charged with the energy from two major musical epicenters, Toronto and New York City, the Galloway/Cade Big Band is an exciting collaboration between two of Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians. Born out of the desire for a local composers’ forum, this rehearsal ensemble has become one of the prime creative incubators for some of Winnipeg’s most skilled jazz composers. Featuring an ambitious repertoire of all original arrangements, this is sure to be one of the most exciting musical endeavors to surface from the Winnipeg jazz scene in recent years.
