Album Notes
The band’s repertoire is extremely diverse, ranging from early Ellington, through Goodman, Shaw, Basie, and Kenton, to the many great arrangers and composers of today such as Gordon Goodwin. The band also regularly features original compositions and arrangements by Larry Schrum, and Allan Gilliland, Chair of the Music Department and Head of Composition at Grant MacEwan University, who is also a member of the band’s trumpet section. Most of RCBB’s shows program three or four of these great charts, making each concert a unique musical experience.

The band has released two CDs: “Just Friends” (2010) and “River” (2012) both of which largely feature the work of Allan and Larry.

The 2015/2016 RCBB season is the 20th, and is being marked with a three part concert series featuring some of the biggest names in jazz and blues. The first of these took place on October 17 2015 in front of a sold-out crowd at the Oasis Conference Centre in Edmonton, and featured Wycliffe Gordon, voted the World’s #1 trombone player in Downbeat magazine’s Annual Critics Poll for the last three years. Other performances in our inaugural “Jazz at the Oasis” series will feature the wonderful jazz vocalist Carol Welsman (Saturday February 13, 2016), and Two Blue, an Edmonton based blues duo that features the vocals of newcomer Karimah and the seasoned guitar playing and vocals of veteran artist/producer Robert Walsh (Saturday April 30, 2016).Plans are underway for our 2016/17 season with trumpet great Wayne Bergeron scheduled for Saturday October 22, 2016, and the legendary Tommy Banks appearing on Saturday February, 2017.
