Produced by esteemed pianist/composer/educator Jim McNeely and featuring the great John Riley on drums, the disc highlights Jamieson’s wide-ranging compositions and well-honed arranging skills, which in the hands of his handpicked jazz orchestra swing, inspire, and challenge listeners with a program of emotional depth and stylistic diversity. Jamieson’s largest influences come from legendary Canadian composer and arranger Rob McConnell, and contemporary jazz guru Dave Liebman.
