The VJO with Alan Matheson "A Centennial Celebration of Jazz"

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 6:00pm to 11:00pm
The Original Dixieland Jazz Band made the first commercial jazz recording in 1917 with their rendition of "Livery Stable Blues". The Victoria Jazz Orchestra will trace the origins of jazz from New Orleans at the turn of the 20th Century to the present day in this commemorative show. We will hear from Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong through Count Basie and Charles Mingus to Victoria, BC in 2017.
Alan Matheson currently teaches trumpet and jazz piano at Vancouver's University of British Columbia, and teaches in the Jazz Studies programs at Vancouver Community College and Capilano University. Alan has worked with a variety of local groups including the Vancouver Symphony, Vancouver Opera orchestra and Fred Stride’s Big Band, and is the leader of his own big band, nonet and septet.
