Featuring Russ Broom, guitar With arrangements from Craig Soby
The Ironwood Stage and Grill and promoter/JUNO-award-winning producer Scott Morin are excited to give Calgary music and Prince fans a beautiful night filled with soulful, jazz, and funky music, penned by the genius of Prince, in addition to hard bop classics from the Blue Note Records era.
Featuring Calgary’s greatest soulful jazz musicians, this concert will see a septet of jazz and soulful music veterans playing beautifully arranged versions of some of Prince’s greatest songs, arranged by BC-based musician Craig Soby, in addition to classic hard bop arrangements that you will rarely hear in Calgary, from legends of jazz including Hank Mobley, Clifford Brown, and Jackie McLean.
Three-time JUNO award-winning producer Scott Morin founded the PurpleJazz concept while living in Toronto and running the legendary jazz label Verve Records for 10 years from 2000 – 2010. Since moving home to Calgary, he has transplanted this concert series dedicated to presenting jazz and the music of Prince into a night of fun stories, incredible music, and a celebration of one of the great artists of music.
