Past song of the week / January 2012

Janice Finlay
"The Houston Shuffle"

From the album Anywhere But Here

Featured track, available from January 5 to January 12

Late last year, acclaimed jazz saxophonist, composer, and arranger Janice Finlay released Anywhere But Here, the highly-anticipated follow-up to her Western Canadian Music Award-winning album, She's Hip. The new CD -- which was produced my Musirex Productions and features top jazz names -- has been garnering critical attention, including recent coverage from CBC Scene and the Winnipeg Free Press. Finlay is back on the stage this month with her trio at a performance at the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain for Mardi Jazz on January 10. Later this month, she'll also be offering an evening Jazz Appreciation course through the St. James-Assiniboia School Division's Continuing Education Department, January 18 through February 8. Finlay's tune "The Houston Shuffle" is our feature download this week. Download it for free and don't miss Finlay live on stage.
