Jaelem Bhate Jazz Orchestra
Debut album release
“Lyrical and intense” with a “unique and highly effective [compositional] voice” (Canadian Music Center), composer, bandleader, and conductor Jaelem Bhate releases his anticipated debut album of his original works for jazz orchestra. It includes his multi-movement ‘Pacific Suite’ inspired by his formative experiences in his native BC, along with works that blend the influences of his jazz heroes of Thad Jones, John Clayton, Bill Holman, and his mentor Fred Stride with his parallel study of Western Classical music.
The record features some of Vancouver’s best; Steve Kaldestad, Brent Mah, Michael Kim, Duran Ritz, and many other notable instrumentalists.
