"...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.
