ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MAPL brings together the talents of five musicians who share a love of improvisation and great songwriting.

The group tackles the Great Canadian songbook and reworks some classic Canadian songs by artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bruce Cockburn, kd lang, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young – to name just a few.

The result is a musically sophisticated, but highly accessible hybrid of jazz and pop that has been pleasing audiences in the Calgary area since 2010.

MAPL has been featured at Calgary’s Canada Day concert on Prince’s Island, at the Cliff Bungalow-Mission Jazz Series, at the Rotary Performing Arts Centre in Okotoks and at Calgary’s now defunct Beatniq Jazz club. In the new year, MAPL will be in concert at Heritage Park.

In the autumn of 2014, MAPL released its first recording, featuring fresh arrangements of some great Canadian tunes (Bird On A Wire, Run To You, One Day I Walk) as well as original, instrumental compositions.

Canadian Songbook by the MAPL Quintet has been featured on both the CBC and CKUA radio networks. The recording is available for purchase on Itunes and CDBaby.

MAPL features the beguiling voice of Danish-born singer and songwriter Nynne Collins. The group’s sound is lush and and beautiful and features the arrangements of pianist Andrea Petrity and sax player Frank Rackow. Top Calgary rhythm players Robin Tufts on drums and Stefano Valdo on bass provide an impeccable foundation for the group.
