BARKING SPHINX & COASTAL JAZZ PRESENT: MICHAEL BLAKE’S KOMAGATA MARU BLUES

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 Lachancebass, 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 multicultural society—one that will inspire musicians and audience members to explore themes of difference, tolerance, and respect as considered from multiple perspectives.
