Melange New Album

_____
You can still get the Prairie Fire album, featuring the Large Jazz Ensemble music of Dean McNeill. You can listen to sample tracks, read reviews, and buy the album.

"...this is among the most pleasurable and rewarding contemporary big-band albums to come out of Canada—or anywhere else—in quite some time."

— Jack Bowers, All About Jazz

The album was recorded in February of 2007 by a group of Canadian musicians during a national CBC radio concert. The Prairie Fire album showcases a cross-section of Canadian talent, musicians who are too often isolated from one another due in part to our country's vast geography.
