Peggy Lee's Echo Painting
Peggy Lee's Echo Painting
In celebration of her exceptional impact on the Vancouver creative music scene, Coastal Jazz has commissioned Peggy Lee to compose Echo Painting, an original suite of music for an exciting new ensemble. The cast of characters is the brainchild of Peggy Lee and Rainbow Robert, who had it in mind to present a new group that features and celebrates the voices of Vancouver creative music artists across the generations.

With many colours to draw upon, Peggy Lee's Echo Painting features music that is multi-layered, texturally varied and melodically rich. From incendiary improvisation and intensely cerebral New Music to achingly beautiful melodic compositions, she takes anything she touches to a deeper and more artful level creating “music that combines the timeless and the otherworldly in equal measure” (Georgia Straight). With Brad Turner trumpet, John Bentley tenor sax, Dylan van der Schyff drums, James Meger bass, Cole Schmidt guitar, John Paton saxes, Meredith Bates violin, Roderick Murray trombone, Bradshaw Pack pedal steel guitar.

The commissioning and development for this project were made possible through the generous support of the BC Arts Council and the Province of British Columbia.
