Calgary’s Jazz Collaborative JazzYYC is presenting three jazz concerts live at King Eddy from June 29 to July 2 for their summer festival. The saxophone will be the star of the show when Baritone Madness performs on July 2.
About Baritone Madness
Baritone Madness started as a way for Keith O’Rourke to get together with a couple of his other favourite baritone saxophonists and celebrate the instrument by putting it front and centre in the band instead of in its usual supporting roll. Being a huge Sonny Rollins fan, he decided to name the band in honour of one of his favourite recordings and Baritone Madness was born. The first gig was a sold out hit and had the audience in attendance all asking about the next date. The second gig went just like the first and so they kept going. Onstage all band members take a turn in leading the ensemble making it a truly co-operative project with each also contributing compositions to the band. The band has proven to be quite popular nationwide with three straight months at #1 on the Canadian Jazz charts.
