Hailed for his “panoramic imagination” (New York Times), New York saxophonist Michael Blake returns to his Vancouver roots with a compelling project written specifically for a stellar band of creative West Coast talents, including JP Carter trumpet, Peggy Lee cello, André Lachance bass, Ron Samworth guitar, Chris Gestrin keyboards, Dylan van der Schyff drums. Using both composition and improvisation, The Komagata Maru Blues is a profoundly personal expression of life in contemporary multi-cultural society—one that will inspire musicians and audience members to explore themes of difference, tolerance, and respect as considered from multiple perspectives.
