About the Artists:

The Alan Matheson Septet has been an important part of the Vancouver jazz scene for over twenty years. Their first CD release Intrada features original compositions by Alan Matheson that reflect a wide range of musical influences from Ellington to Woody Shaw. The septet also plays compositions by band members Rob McKenzie, Dave Branter and Craig Scott as well as jazz classics by Billy Strayhorn, Fletcher Henderson and Stan Kenton. Their “little big band” sound has impressed audiences at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival and on the air via CBC Radio’s Hot Air and Tonic programs. The personnel of both groups is made up of some of Vancouver’s most versatile musicians, all equally at home in jazz, classical and popular music.
