Just a little note to announce our (Toronto Art Orchestra) upcoming gig at the Dominion on Queen Mon. Dec. 10th at 9:00 pm. We have some new imaginative arrangements and compositions by Bruce Cassidy and I. We also have an arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Arab Dance from the Nutcracker by the Great Gil Evans! I am so excited because the band is sounding great and it will be a Killin' night! Here are some of the impressions and feedback from the people who were lucky enough to attend our first gig on Oct. 1st.
Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed your band at the Dominion. I was tired that night but stayed for two sets anyway. The arrangements were varied and rather different from the usual. I liked yours and Bruce's the most.
I think your band will become one of the important staples of jazz in Toronto, and will also be of interest to audiences elsewhere.
Good luck with it.
