Past song of the week / September 2023

Chuck Copenace
"Nothing Simple"

From the album Oshki Manitou

Featured track, available from September 28 to October 5

The wait for Chuck Copenace's new full-length album is finally over! The Winnipeg-based, Ojibway trumpeter, arranger, and composer is set to release Oshki Manitou, which was recorded by Paul Yee at Stereobus, everywhere on September 29. Local audiences can celebrate the launch with Copenace at the Fort Garry Hotel on October 1 where he'll perform two shows presented by Jazz Winnipeg. Next up, Copenace will hit the road for performances at L’OFF Festival de jazz de Montréal, plus Toronto, Manitoulin Island, Revelstoke, and Nelson BC (keep an eye on his website for tour details). We have a very special first listen to his previously unreleased track "Nothing Simple" for you as this week's feature. Press play, check out the whole album, get to know him a bit better, and do not miss Chuck Copenace live!
