ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra:

Created in 2013, the Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra (SSJO) is a Toronto-based contemporary big band founded and led by Mason Victoria. Noted for its abnormally large size (20 members and counting!), the SSJO still manages to squeeze its way into some of the most iconic venues in Toronto, including the Rex Jazz & Blues Bar and Lula Lounge. Comprised of some of the most promising and emerging jazz artists in the GTA, the SSJO has been a headline at the Toronto Undergraduate Jazz Festival in 2016 and will continue in 2017. This year, the SSJO was a joint winner of the TD Discovery Series Special Projects Grant alongside the Socialist Night School, was a featured artist by Sofar Sounds, and has seen the release of their first album, Imagine We’re Sailing, on November 13th 2017, which features special guest artist and esteemed jazz trumpeter, Brian O’Kane.

About Mason Victoria:

As a recipient of the Toronto Duke Ellington Society Scholarship and Dave Stillwell Arranging Award, Mason Victoria is no stranger to the jazz community. From directing and composing for one of the largest big bands in Toronto, the Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra (SSJO), to arranging and composing for several groups including the Shaw Street Collective, Toronto Jazz Orchestra, UNIVOX choir, New Music Jazz Orchestra, and ensembles at Humber College and the Los Angeles College of Music, Mason continues to inspire his generation. Other notable collaborations include 2015 Prix Goyer Prize winner, Philip Chiu, and Juno Award winner, Emilie Claire-Barlow. Mason has also helped kickstart projects in Toronto, such as The Rebirth of the Cool, James Valdez and the Neovintage, and Masini McDermott’s One Night Only Live.

Mason is currently working on the SSJO’s first album release, and was a recent featured artist on Heather Bambrick’s Jazzology on Jazz FM. His original piece, “Willow Trees”, which is included on the upcoming album, was sought after for a live performance by the Toronto Jazz Orchestra. He also holds a position with Spectrum Music as an Artistic Producer.
