Sep 4 & 5: Nelson Boschman CD Release Concert

You know jazz pianist Nelson Boschman (not to mention drummer Kenton Wiens) from lots of CHRISTMAS PRESENCE and other such shows at Pacific Theatre - indeed, they played our Gala this past February. He's recently completed recording his second “trio plus guests” CD, Keeping Time Vol 02, in partnership with Communitas Supportive Care Society (formerly MCC Supportive Care Services). I love Volume 01 : "Song For Ordinary Time" and "Jerusalem Hymn" are both huge favourites. (The first CD can be ordered here. There's another CD as well, "MJC At The Shining Rose," but I don't know where you can order it.)

In celebration of the release of the new record, NeBo is doing two CD Release Concerts, one in Vancouver...

Nelson writes...
For these concerts, I am excited and honored to be joined by the same musicians who played on the recording itself. Here’s the lineup:

Nelson Boschman piano & rhodes
Adam Thomas double bass & electric bass
Kenton Wiens drums & cymbals
Bria Skonberg trumper & flugelhorn
Brian Thiessen electric guitar & nylon-string guitar

So, kindly proceed with the following instructions:
1.) Go mark your calendars immediately.
2.) Pick up the phone, go online or head out to House of James to buy enough tickets for you and the friends you undoubtedly will want to bring along.
3.) Forward this email to that other group of friends, family or acquaintances who you’re not sure are so much into jazz, but really should come to this show.
4.) Print and hand out attached files to ‘that other group of friends…’ (see #3 above)
5.) When you come to the concert, bring enough extra cash (or credit) to buy LOTS of CDs. They make wonderful gifts, and remember that all proceeds go towards Communitas’ important work among people with various kinds of disabilities.

There, that wasn’t so hard, was it? J. See you at the concerts!!!
