The Regina Jazz Society and executive producer Peter Champagne present music historian Fred Stride’s Saskatchewan Suite composition. The 8 suites detail 150 years of life in Saskatchewan and 21 of Canada’s greatest jazz musicians, collectively known as The Saskatchewan All Stars Band, perform this exciting new music masterfully.

Through this recording project, the Regina Jazz Society seeks to communicate the beautifully unique history of Saskatchewan in the vernacular of jazz, by offering a live recording of a commissioned work by one of Canada’s most talented composers, Fred Stride. The concert in question was recorded at Casino Regina on December 28, 2019. The event featured many of the best local and ex-patriate musicians of the province in a truly special performance of Stride’s unique composition. It was an evening which allowed a fantastic group of artists to tell Saskatchewan’s story through music for the very first time ever.

The group of musicians on stage that night was one of the most impressive gatherings of talent in Saskatchewan’s history, and resulted in a caliber of performance unlikely to be replicated anytime soon. These are the players that grew up here, got their musical start here, and were then exported to every corner of the globe to share their craft. They are joined by other players who came here to live, teach, and perform because Saskatchewan affords them that grand opportunity.

So, what is “The Saskatchewan Story”? It is the stories of everyone living here and all those that have gone before us. It is more…  more
